I work as an investigator in a large personal injury law firm in Eastern North Carolina. I am a member of the National Association of Investigative Specialists and my areas of concentration are automobile and tractor-trailer accidents, wrongful death investigations, and product liability investigations. Sometimes, I use my experiences as an investigator in my writing.
My major writing influences were Bill Granger, Alistair MacLean, and Adam Hall, all thriller/spy novelists supreme. Bill Granger's "November Man" novels are the best spy novels ever written, with Adam Hall's "Quiller" series running a very close second.
My favorite current authors are Greg Iles and David Lindsey. Iles' second novel "Black Cross" is one of the best thrillers I've ever read.
