About Me
An award-winning author, his first musical, "1st Tuesday in November" earned him 1985's ‘Most Promising Playwright of the Year’ award. His musical murder/mystery "Turning 60 can be MURDER!" played to critical acclaim in NY. He won the 1987 ‘Best Young Author of the Year’ award from ‘Voyager’ Magazine for his "Commander Fontwell". His prophetic novel "Future Tense" was written while he was touring Asia in the early 2000s. He currently lives & works aboard his yacht, the S.S. Phoenix.
Type of Writer
I enjoy writing Pulp Fiction, psychological pieces, romance novels, music and musical theater pieces and the odd poetic work.
Writing Style
My writing style varies with what I'm writing. Pulp fiction obviously requires a different approach than musical theatre does
Favorite Genres
Psychological Romance novels, historical fiction set in the Napoleonic era, SOME sci-fi, musical theatre & murder/mysteries.
Favorite Books
The entire Hornblower Series, the entire Aubrey/Maturin series, "The Great Gatsby", "The Hound of the Baskervilles" and "The Godfather" among others.
Favorite Authors
C.S. Forrester, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mario Puzo, Richard O'Brian, and Stephen King. Chaucer and Shakespeare have their moments, too; I suppose.
Favorite Quote
"Some say time stalks us all our lives. I prefer to think time is a companion who joins us on our journey through life & reminds us to cherish every moment, because it'll never come again. What we leave behind isn't as important as how we've lived."
Favorite Movies
"The Godfather Saga", "Amadeus", "Citizen Kane", "Forbidden Planet", "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", "Captain Horatio Hornblower", "Operation: Petticoat", "Goldfinger", "Gone with the Wind", "To Kill a Mockingbird" and ANYTHING by the Rat Pack!
