Finally, after working for 40 years as a CPA, I am free to use the creative side of my brain. In the last nine years, I have written and published eight books, sold foreign translation rights, participated in radio interviews, book signings, readings, written articles, given talks, and met some of the most creative people in the world.

Background Information

In April of 2010, I publshed my autobiography, entitled "And Time Goes By." The book of about 160 pages begins with my parent's struggle to reach America in 1939, during World War II. Beginning with my birth in London, England, where I was named after the King, I talk about the bombings I lived through as an infant. I relate those times with emotional issues that affected me years later. My life growing up in the United States was basically without incident until I suffered a near drowning in 1984. The accident threw my delicate nervous system out of whack and caused me to suffer with a devastating emotional illness that lasted almost eight years. My depression and severe anxiety was compounded by illness within my family. My son, Steven, was stricken down with lung cancer while another son, Gary, suffered with Lyme disease. When Steven passed away in 2006, I was devastated. When ever I saw some light  in my life, darkness came along and snuffed it out. Learning to live "one day at a time," is a secret that I learned to survive the tragedies that befell me. With it all, I kept my faith and held on to it for strength and comfort. My story is not unlike many others that suffered with hardship. How I was able to come to terms with it and my life is an interesting story that needs to be read.

In December of 2006, I lost my beloved son, Steven, to lung cancer. Steve was my best friend and losing him was devastating. I carry his memory around with me every day and some day I hope we will meet and share all of those wonderful times of the past. Steven inspired me to write a book about our last two years together. It is called "Why my Son?" It is a book about my son's struggle to overcome his terminal disease and how his attitude kept him strong to the very end. The book details the love between Steve and I and how our love was tested with every chemo treatment. For those who have struggled with life threatening health problems, reading "Why my Son?" will enlighten you as to the in's and out's and the do's and don'ts of a terminal illness. I strongly advise everyone to read this book. It could save your life.

My father was the biggest influence in my life. He taught me by example to work hard and persevere. He also taught me that there were no shortcuts in life and that anything worthwhile was worth working and waiting for. My dad was a very wise man. I was lucky to have him as my advisor. I wish he were still around to counsel me.

My mother was the second biggest influence in my life. She taught me the meaning of love and forgiveness. She showed me how to be patient and the meaning of giving. I owe her much for teaching me by example. I only wish she could be around to share in my nachas.

My wonderful wife, Sandy, has been with me through thick and thin. Without her, I don't know how I would have survived the emotional upheavals in my life. She is my soul mate and life-long counselor. Sharing my life with her has been the greatest gift I've ever received.

I recently published my eighth book entitled, "And Time Goes By," an autobiography of my life. The book published by my company, Terumah Publishing is now available for purchase online at Amazon and Barnes and Nobel.

My most recent book is "Why my Son?" a chronology of events leading up and through my son's battle with advanced lung cancer. Written shortly after his passing, this book is a journal documenting the love between father and son. Steven was my best friend and losing him led to a devastation of my soul. Read about our relationship and how our love was tested time and time again.

I recently published my sixth book, my first romance title, titled "A Moment of Passion." The novella is a real tear-jerker, so if you looking for a good cry, this will do it for you.

Additional Information

3/13/06: My new book, A Moment of Passion will be available for order on April 1, 2006. The novella is published in 6x9 paperback and is available for order from Terumah Publishing's web page: ( by sending email to . 1/26/05...My new novel entitled "TIME PASSPORT" has just been released for order. The book is 6x9 glossy cover paperback of 220 pages, printed in 14 pt. easily readable text for my myopic readers. A summary of the book appears on the back cover and reads as follows: Albert Korn, a successful retired tire executive, sets sail to Bermuda onboard the Mystic Lady, his new 35-foot sailing yacht. The relatively short trip from Nassau is uneventful until the cruiser hits a floating piece of debris that penetrates the hull of the luxurious yacht. Having to abandon ship, the 55-year old mariner is marooned at sea just 25 miles from land. The adventure heats up as the sun beats down on the castaway adrift in the Gulf Stream. With nothing but a life vest and a small pocketknife to survive, the drifter is carried into a turbulent current that proves to be the beginning of a strange adventure into time. Things get exciting when investigators from the CIA’s Project Atlantis try to uncover the cause of the strange phenomenon and encounter undersea wormholes that are found to be time ports to other dimensions. A subplot involves espionage at a Top Secret military facility (AUTEC) on Andros Island in the Bahamas. If you enjoy mystery, intrigue, adventure and sci-fi all mixed in, you will really enjoy this fast moving suspenseful novel. 1/14/04 My latest fictional novella is titled "Magic, Malice and Murder." The stage was set and the Great Zaganinii was about to perform his death-defying Tomb of Death escape. The famous Italian Master Illusionist's finale always received a standing ovation and he expected no less from the audience in the historical Firenze theatre. When the 1,000-pound wrecking ball dropped from the sky-high crane, there was no thought of a crazed killer out to spoil the act. Who in their right mind would want to end the life of such a popular magician and showman? Was it Sal, his trusted prop man, Luciano, the crane operator or perhaps one of his beautiful show assistants, Sophia or Maria? Then again, perhaps it was someone off the set, someone that held a grudge for the successful magician. The story takes place in Florence, (Firenze) Italy in the heart of Tuscany country with all of its beautiful vineyards, rolling hills and golden sunsets. If you enjoy Whodunits, this book will be an enjoyable read. As a novella, you will appreciate the quick pace, the abundance of dialogue and absence of tedious description. ************************************************** 8/15/2003 My new non-fiction title is "The Minyanaires." The book is about the motivations and beliefs of 19 congregants and five members of the clergy of Beth El Congregation in Baltimore, Maryland. My book is now available for order from the publisher, Terumah Publishing. Order online at There is special pricing available for organizations who wish to order in quantities. Send email to for more information. ************************************************* March, 2003 I recently completed writing a novel entitled "Running From Justice. It is about a bail bondsman and a bounty hunter, who are best of friends and who rely on each other for their living. Action, titillating encounters and courtroom drama make this a must read. It is currently with the publisher and will be available in Trade Paperback around April 15th, 2003. Ebook version is currently available from the author. I have also published poetry and haiku verse, some of which are displayed on this website.
