About meI enjoy sports (Hooray for the Black and Gold - Steelers, Pirates and Pens), reading and gardening. I read mysteries primarily. I used to write book reviews (primarily audio reviews) for Mystery News and now review for Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine.
I work in financial services, so try to keep up with reading there.
Moved to MD's Eastern Shore in Nov. 2012 and love the Bay, our new home, and the laid back atmosphere.

About my libraryMy library is actually a combined library with my wife. We both read primarily mystery and crime fiction and me, usually on the hardboiled, grittier side. My wife is on the cozier side. I also enjoy taking a break from mysteries now and then, and reading histories or biographies. However, if I should be so foolish as to not have a book near by, I have also been known to read cereal boxes, warranty notices, and computer software or website terms of usage. Needless to say, I always try to keep a book nearby, on paper or audio.

Noticed you liked Die A Little, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here, as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also gritty, a bit violent, and a bit dark :) I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more about the novel before you commit.


Hello, David - Greetings fm a former Odentonian, where the kids will tell you that Odenton spelled backwards is "Noten (ta) Do" - well, almost. We lived in Four Seasons and Chapelgate for 21 years. Retired now in MI, writing my memoirs and other stuff. Ain't this LT site great?! - Tim
Nice to see you here! How neat that you and your spouse span the mystery spectrum.
