Welcome to my page. For more information, visit I began my media career in the media as a U.S. Army combat photographer in Vietnam. Assigned to a public information section, it spent a week escorting Nobel laureate John Steinbeck. In Vietnam I had the great good fortune to meet and become friends with some of the world's greatest reporters and photographers, including Steinbeck, Jonathan Fenby, Jack Laurence, Peter Arnett, Horst Faas, and many others. These men were generous with their time and wisdom and helped put me on the path to becoming a writer. After leaving the Army, I worked briefly in corporate communications, then went freelance in 1978. As I made the transition from magazine writing to longer forms, I was encouraged to specialize but found that I was interested in so many things that I found it impossible to choose only one. Instead I became a frequent collaborator, helping such notables as Native American leader Russell Means and former South Vietnam Prime Minister Nguyen Cao Ky with their autobiographies. I also developed an appreciation for suspense and intrigue that inevitably led me to write about crime. About 2001 I took a segue into film, and had a short but interesting career writing for television. That helped me to create a character that I've put into the Rabbi Ben Mysteries. The first of these books, "For Whom The Shofar Blows," debuted on in November 2011. My second series is "Chelmen and Spaulding CID Mysteries." Chelmin is loosely based on A CID agent whom I knew while serving as a US Army company commander in South Korea. He is conservative in dress, content to eat that which he has always eaten rather than try new things, and in general a guy who resists change. All that goes out the window when he meets Spaulding, a civilian police detective before he enlisted. Together as a team, they are constantly challenging and changing each other. My book M-9 chronicles their first adventure as a team--and how they barely survive it. Book two, The Zombie Deception, will be published in January 2021. Thanks for visiting this page, and remember that habitual readers are smarter and have more well-rounded personalities.
