About Me
I was born in Detroit, that's how I first got hooked on Elmore Leonard. I am also a professional musician and screenwriter. I had done corporate sales and author events for years at Borders and went on to publish actor Michael Madsen's poetry and photography under 13 Hands Publications. I have released my first mystery novel: Deathryde: Rebel Without a Corpse ( Available on Amazon, May 27th published by Gilded Hearse Press ) it is written in the hip, offbeat style of Carl Hiaasen, Gregory Mcdonald (Fletch), and, of course, Elmore Leonard. "Pit" A Leo Van Cleef Novel is a new detective series that is due out in Dec. 2021.
