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!


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 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!

Follow my online work in the sport on the "National Formula One" page, the "National Historic Motor Sports" page, or the "Rochester Motor Sports" page of Examiner.com. Better yet, consider subscribing (totally free and done at the webpage where you view an article).

Poetry in Motion: Vintage Speed

In 2012, I was honored when 2 of my strong interests joined, and 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:

"Poetry in Motion: Vintage Speed"


I'm a regular, paid contributor to the National edition of Examiner.com. In addition to the motor sports topics mentioned above (Formula 1, historics, etc.), I still occasionally write about topics in Arts & Entertainment categories of the site as well (books, movies, etc.)

It's fun to write on these topics for a top 100 website on the Internet. My online pages have attracted millions of readers, which is a humbling fact for any writer!

I just launched a YouTube Channel in the summer of 2014. You are welcome to see what's there (racing-related videos, mostly, right now, but more variety may come in the future!).

Facebook -- Literature Page (click link below)

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.

I do have a general writer's blog, but to be honest, I do so much other writing and research that I'm afraid that this blog almost always lags behind (that's why I call it "not-so-daily!"). Often I'll go there to write about the creative process -- various "angsts," and all!

The blog is not located on this website. If you are interested in checking it out, please feel free to click on the link below to find it:
