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 tried my hand at other things such as children's books and poetry. Since 2009, I've also written thousands of online articles.

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.


Besides writing fiction and poetry and for years about literature and literary subjects, I have more recently developed a strong interest in motor sports -- particularly historic/vintage motor racing and Formula 1. In addition to F1, NASCAR, Indy Car, and historic/vintage motor racing, I also write about other topics related to the sport -- news and/or features.

It's my pleasure to be currently working on a book about racers and racing with an experienced historic racer. Research on the book continues at a steady pace.

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