I'm a published novelist after working as a copy boy with the New York Times and a sportswriter with the Philadelphia Bulletin. My first novel, A Brownstone in Brooklyn, is the first of a trilogy, and is available in bookstores and on the internet. My second novel, Philly Style and Philly Profile, was published in 2007. My third novel, The Ghost of Atlanta, will be published in 2010.


Background Information

       I grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York and attended Bushwick High School. The sixties in Brooklyn was an era that had a personality, a feel , and a life-force that changed a generation. I felt this energy and experienced these fires of social change.

        After high school, I spent the next four years riding the "A" train to Harlem, in upper Manhattan,  to earn my Bachelor of  Arts degree from the City College of  New York. At CCNY, which was located just a few blocks from the famous Apollo Theater, Wednesday afternoons were hard on the undergraduates. The matinee performances of the major R&B groups of the times were more tempting than attending a boring college lecture. Most of the time I succumbed,  but I attended enough classes to pass my courses and eventually earn a college degree from one of the best universities in the country.

       At CCNY, literature instructors like Prof. Thomas Tashiro, fueled the fire in me to become a writer!

        In  my  novels, I want  the reader to experience places that are filled with hopes, dreams, challenges and fears that make us human. Come join me in this reading adventure!

 

 

Birth Place

Accomplishments

When I was a sportswriter with the Philadelphia Bulletin, I won the Associated Press Sports Editors Award in 1977. This award was a National sportswriting Award given for the third-best sports story written that year.

Currently, I am a Creative/Writing Publishing instructor at Evening at Emory.

Additional Information

I've signed copies of A Brownstone In Brooklyn at the prestigious New York Is Book Country Festival in New York City, the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta, Georgia, the AJC-Decatur Book Festival in Decatur, Georgia and at the Miami Book Fair International in Maimi, Florida. I've had book signings in the following book stores: Barnes & Nobles, Borders, Chapter 11, Books-A-Million, Nubian bookstore, the African Spectrum bookstore, and have been part of a panel of authors at the Auburn Avenue Research Library in Atlanta, Georgia.
