About meI am married with two daughters, a 15 year old and a baby under a year old. I live in Brooklyn, NY and work in lower Manhattan near Battery Park.
About my libraryI am an avid reader and collector of hard boiled and noir mysteries. My reading interests span the era of the classic hard boiled authors of the 1930's and 40's to contemporary crime writers. My primary collecting interests are Raymond Chandler and Lawrence Block. Authors I collect to a far lesser degree include William Lindsay Gresham, Chester Himes, Charles Willeford, Edward Bunker, Michael Collins, Daniel Woodrell and Loren Estleman. I also enjoy collecting mystery reference works and biographies.
