I've written in all kinds of genres: novels, TV shows, stage plays, and movies. My mystery thriller KILLER STORY will come out from Oceanview Publishing on January 17, 2023! How far will Petra go to catch the killer – and make her podcast a hit? Emmy Award-winning investigative reporter and bestselling author Hank Phillippi Ryan calls Killer Story "riveting and irresistible – a deep dive into journalists' tactics, ambition, and cut-throat passion." Áine Cain, host of the podcast The Murder Sheet, calls Killer Story "a slick, smart crime thriller for the internet age!” For more info on Killer Story and my other novels, and the inspiration behind them, you can check my website, My thriller THE NECKLACE came out from Oceanview in September, 2021. A small-town waitress fights for justice for her daughter. The Necklace is optioned for film by Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way and Cartel Pictures. Lee Child says: "This is as fast and tense as a great thriller should be, but it's full of warmth and humanity too. Buy it today and read it tonight!" I've written four mystery novels starring amateur sleuth Jacob Burns. These books were all originally published by Signet; now they're all available on Kindle. The first novel, BREAKFAST AT MADELINE'S, received the Malice Domestic Award. The Library Journal called BREAKFAST AT MADELINE'S "the perfect antidote for a rainy day." Publishers Weekly, reviewing GRAND DELUSION, said "Witten delights with his charming characters, especially Burns himself." The Romantic Times said, "Told with warmth and wit, STRANGE BEDFELLOWS is a wry story that packs a wallop of an ending." Murder Express called THE KILLING BEE "a fast, witty, thoroughly engrossing novel that I was sorry to see end." TV: I've written for House, Law & Order, Pretty Little Liars, Medium, Homicide, CSI: Miami, Judging Amy, Supernatural, and other shows. Plays: My published plays include The Deal, Washington Square Moves, and The Ties That Bind. They've been produced in theatres all over the world. Movie: My movie DRONES, directed by Rick Rosenthal and starring Matt O'Leary and Eloise Mumford, premiered in 2014 at the London Film Festival, the Austin Film Festival, and the AFI Fest. It's available at Amazon. So that's my professional life in a nutshell! My wife Nancy Seid teaches at Crossroads School in Santa Monica, and our sons Zack and Jacob do machine learning, CRISPR, and all kinds of amazing stuff.
