About me

Gender Male
Occupation writer
Location Avon, CT, United States
Introduction I'm a former advertising copywriter and executive, and a writer of novels (17 published), essays and short stories. I’m also a fine woodworker and house designer, a musician and single-handed sailor. I’ve led a mystery writers conference (CrimeCONN) for nine years. In my seventies, my hobbies include remembering where I left my iPhone, the dates of our anniversary and grandchildren's birthdays, and names of famous entertainers. Dogs are my favorite people.
Interests I'm interested in nearly everything, though my focus on mollusks wanes after the Jurassic.
Favorite Movies Blade Runner. The Departed. Spinal Tap.
Favorite Music I play rock 'n' roll, listen to select jazz and classical, and hide from opera.
Favorite Books Presumed Innocent, Mystic River, Gone Girl, everything by Hammett, Ross MacDonald, Chandler, and most literature of pre-war 20th century.
