My high school yearbook quote was from the Book of Isaiah. Further, "I will act, I will do it".

Background Information

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York although many people allege that this school of hard knocks would have converted me into a tough, streetwise, sullen, hard-boiled and wise-cracking no-nonsense individual who would never ascribe to creative writing very seriously, if I survived the murders and killings within the streets perpetrated by people that you knew, thought you knew, neighbors, strangers, criminals, and the Mafia.

So Ellison's "Invisible Man" blindfold and ring-fighting initial chapters scene and exposition within its social context and existential relevance is more real than you might believe otherwise unless you have actually experienced it for yourself.

My very first novel was a Western not like Louis L'amour books and stories but a showdown with inevitable shootout between the characters at the very end.

I attended Bronx High School of Science in New York City where I served as one of the editors of a Constitutional Law class Legal Studies Journal. I wrote numerous short stories which I submitted to Alfred Hitchcock and Ellery Queen mystery magazines. One such short story, "The Door Never Closes' may be included within my next WRITING SAMPLER.

I kept writing diaries, notebooks, and journals. I still maintain a daily writing journal.

I attended Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts for one year and eventually graduated from Syracuse University in New York.

I first published poetry and then my first completed novel, IDIOT's DELIGHT, was submitted commercially although rejected by most publishers.

THE WRITING SAMPLER is a sample of my style with excerpts from some of my favorite writings, themes, and genres. I began writing most of its entries during 1994, so you could say that the book required 13 years to complete, perhaps even longer if you include the excerpts from IDIOT'S DELIGHT written and completed in 1991.

Of course, I am constantly revising and have revised most of my writing to appear within my current book, some to reflect and represent current times, culture, and modern human or social interaction.


My favorite writers who have inspired and influenced my writing although not always style, theme, or content include Ralph Ellison, Ishmael Reed, Richard Wright, Langston Hughes, Robert Ludlam, Mickey Spillane, Elmore Leonard, Brett Easton Ellis, Saul Bellow, Thomas Wolfe, William Faulkner, Albert Camus, Dasheill Hammett, Raymond Chandler, John Steinbeck, Henry James, Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Edgar Allan Poe, Shakespeare, and of course, like my namesake, Ernest Hemingway, in addition to others, too innumerable to list only here.
