My first careers in life were helping people. As a caseworker for the New York City Department of Social Services, Protective Services, I investigated the horrors of the abuse and neglect of children. After attaining master’s degrees in School Psychology and Clinical Social Work, I continued to help children ins schools and my private practice, along with adolescents and adults. Always striving to improve his understanding of human nature, I researched and then wrote a personal improvement book, Taming Your Inner & Outer Bullies: Confronting Life’s Stressors And Winning. Always having a vivid imagination and a desire to write fiction, I first wrote short stories that were published on the web and in print. My first novel A Sinister Obsession was published by Black Opal Books as well as this current novel, Stardust Dreams. I am a member of the International Thriller Writers Organization and Romance Writers of America.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
My favorite meal can only be found at a diner where the dinner includes an appetizer, soup, salad, main course, and coffee and dessert. With that said, I begin with pickled herring in cream sauce, matzah ball soup, plain salad with thousand island dressing, bread, stuffed filet of sole with crabmeat, mashed potatoes and gravy, and corn. Lastly, chocolate cream pie, and coffee. Of course I can’t finish it, so most comes homes.
Describe the perfect vacation.
I just came back from it. Three days in Paris and Prague, riverboat down the Danube, which went through Germany, Austria, and Hungary. Great food, beer, sightseeing, and friendship. However, it wasn’t perfect because I didn’t play golf.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
It was a gun. And with that gun I had power. I could be a cowboy, soldier, and policeman. I created so many exciting scenes and stories, which continue to this day. These days kids and violence is frowned upon, but I didn’t become the bad people I was shooting, I was the good guy. And I am still the good guy.
What are your hobbies?
As a retired person it’s bowling, tennis, golf, and fishing. I am an artist and photographer and my paintings and pictures adorn the walls. Cooking is a great love especially making desserts, bread, and soup.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
The theme from Star Trek.
