I was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up on Long Island. Growing up reading was never one of my favorite things to do. I would rather have been on a basketball court or softball field. The first book I ever read cover to cover was “The Outsiders”. It was given to me by my senior year English teacher after she realized I never read any of the other books she assigned. That book change my whole outlook on the joys of reading. My first book “the Pact” was in my head for over twenty years. It would creep forward every now and then and then go hide itself again. I finally found the time to get it down on paper. Currently I live in Richmond, Virginia and work as a design engineer. When I’m not reading or writing I enjoy a good poker game and watching the NY Yankees.
