I'm an American writer living and working in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York.
I write books, magazine articles, essays, and have also had other things published such as children's & reference books and have tried my hand at poetry. Since 2009, I've also written thousands of articles online for a large website on the 'net.
On this site, you'll find more information about my books and a little bit about me. I hope you find what you're looking for; if not, please feel free to send me an email. You'll find the address under "Contact."
Thank you for visiting!
LITERATURE, CREATIVE WRITING
My training and early and long interests have been in creative writing and American and British literature. Consequently, several of my published books, articles, and essays -- as well as my academic research and presentations -- have been in subjects related to these areas.
Over the last few years, I became reacquainted with, and developed a strong interest in, motor sports -- particularly historic/vintage motor racing and Formula 1. I have been credentialed by the FIA to write about Formula 1; by NASCAR to write about that series; and by various historic/vintage organizations such as SVRA and the Goodwood Estate in the U.K. to write about their events. I also write about Indy Car and other topics related to the sport -- news and/or features.
Currently, I'm working on a book about racers and racing. As you might imagine, I'm learning a lot -- and at a fairly quick pace at that!
In 2012, I was honored when 2 of my strong interests combined in one project. I received an artist's grant from the New York State Council on the Arts to write poetry about historic/vintage motor racing. You can find the accompanying website for that project here:
Due to the 2 writing interests being so radically different for most people, I have a dedicated Facebook page for each subject (the FB links below look the same, but they are not). Click below for literary interests.
