Born on the east coast, I've lived in New York, Massachusetts and New Jersey; then decided the west coast might be better. Now I've settled on Denver, somewhat in between. I have four wonderful children, half a dozen grandchildren, and one fantastic chihuahua named Felix. While I've been writing most of my life, I only got serious after I retired from a career as a corporate trainer, a position from which I was able to explore many parts of the world. Most of my current work is in the cozy mystery genre, somewhat on the noir side, featuring an ex-cop who sells hot dogs and solves crimes. I am also working on a fantasy mystery series that will involve battling wizards, a beach bum turned into a dog, and a framed cop who will solve mysteries in Los Angeles.
