I live in south-west Florida.I am a published author.My specialty is novels.


Background Information

My career was in law enforcement, serving 25 years as a police officer in New Jersey. Before that I served in the U.S. Air Force working on the B-47 jet bomber. They were good years; they were years of my youth. Throuout those years I found opportunity to write, but not so much the things I was iinterested in writing. At least during my career.

While my university education was delayed, I eventually completed my schooling and received degrees that were weighted heavily in behavioral sciences. I enjoyed those along with philosophy classes and english classes very much.

In retirement I found more challenges and more opportunities to write creatively. I co-wrote a book that dealt with spirituality and permitted me to look deeper into the world of metaphysics, philosophy and theology.

I often took courses in creative and professional writing. Some of that was in college while other times it was spending years being tutored in classes by professional writers.

In Florida I found myself drawn more and more toward musical entertainers and many became close friends of mine. Mostly this was in the jazz arena and that included New Orleans where I enjoyed these venues up close.

Eventually I put my thoughts  into my computer, along with much other prose and what came out recently was my first novel.  and is rather weighty at 458 pages in a 6X9 formated softback and hardback editions. Since then I have moved on and have produced several later editions.

I have learned much in the last few years about the world of publishing with marketing becoming a large part of what consumes many writers. It certainly is different than the image one has about becoming an author. Much of the glamor is lost in sheer hard work and slow returns. Still, this is the price we must pay. My most recent endeavor will publish under a pseudonym. What is it? Well, I don't think here is the place to reveal that.

 

Birth Place
Philadelphia, PA USA
Accomplishments

Graduated with honors from college. Stopped smoking after 36 years - my best accomplishment. My achievements, certifications and awards are not important. My friends are!

Additional Information

"A Virtuoso's Affairs to Remember" or "The Piano man" are my most recent publishings. As a member of the Naples Press Club I sometime participate in book signings or classes sponsored through them,and Barnes and Noble. The books mentioned above have replaced an older book, "The Virtuoso:A Love Story in Scarlet". The new books have photographs and I believe they will be a better read.

Favorite Links

About my novel:
A nice treatment of the book along with reviews and other information. Additional links to the characters for a 3 dimensional view.

Sample chapters on one of my blogs that are also available to listen to by connecting through a link to my audio file of those chapters. http://alphaxomega.com/virtuoso-audio

Pictorial Geneology
Something I put together in the last few years concerning branches of my family.

Additional information on my newest novel
Yes, hooker that was a police officer - a male hooker who plies his profession in New Orleans and has a sincere love and respect for women. Sorry! It is not complete yet.
