A SORORITY OF ANGELS was selected as a FINALIST by ForeWord Reviews for its BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARDS.An Amazon Best Seller author, I am a member of Mystery Writers of America, International Thriller Writers, Directors Guild of America,and AHEPA. All my novels feature strong women, good or evil. And as Aristophanes wrote: 'There is no animal more invincible than a woman, nor fire either, nor any wildcat so ruthless'. You will either love or hate my 'women', but they will entertain you. I loved writing my novels because I found them challenging,entertaining, and satisfying. It is my hope that they satisfy you with their intriguing and page-turning plots.

After graduating from New York University, I joined a major advertising agency in Manhattan and worked on national television commercials.

I wrote advertising and sales copy, short stories, and continue with writing and editing two future thrillers. I recently completed two screenplays - adaptations of HUNTRESS and THE FORGOTTEN MISSION.ON WRITING: From a speech at my book signing of HUNTRESS at BOOK REVUE bookstore in Huntington, NY (Long Island) on 4/20/12: A relative who had an idea for a novel asked me, "How hard is it to write a novel?" I said, "Writing is as a lonely walk through deep woods where only you hear the sounds of the forest and only you savor its scent and the long and lonesome journey. If you succeed in reaching the end of the woods then you have become a writer...regardless of the manuscript's future." Feeling guilty the next day, I called her and said, "I forgot to warn you that the writing process is addictive because you'll find it challenging, entertaining, and satisfying. And then becomes better and easier as you learn and study the craft." ON WRITING 2: A book is a great gift...to give or to receive.ON WRITING 3: If you enjoyed a book, honor the author by reading another of his books.ON WRITING 4: The good style in writing is one that entertains.Carole and I live on Long Island and have two daughters and six young grandchildren. I volunteered to serve on the board of the Performing Arts Foundation of Long Island for six years, and four years at the Heart Council of Long Island, two years as chairperson.
