I’m always in the wrong place at the wrong time, but it gives me things to write about.
I’ve spent most of my life living, working, and traveling in foreign countries. For some reason, wherever I am a war breaks out, or there’s a revolution or a military takeover. People suspect that I have something to do with these events, but I swear I don’t. I just happen to be on the spot, and most of the time I don’t know what’s happening.
I’ve been writing all my life, and about three years ago I started publishing my novels. Since then I have published six novels: No Way to Peace, The Admiral’s Daughter, All the Flowers, Infamy, A Shower of Roses, and Sara's Laughter, which was published on December 1, 2011. They are suspense novels, and readers tell me they can't put them down.
I write novels not only to entertain but to bring a deeper understanding of how the major events of our time challenge our values. In their pursuit of lofty goals, my protagonists encounter situations that expose their inner conflicts and test their commitments.
My books appeal to educated readers of serious fiction and are popular with reading groups. They all have book discussion guides that include an introduction, a conversation with the author, and questions for discussion.
My first career was in journalism with the Wall Street Journal, after which I served in the army during the Vietnam War. Then I joined a large international bank and worked overseas, initially as an economic and political analyst, applying skills I learned in journalism and the military. My years of living, working, or traveling in foreign countries have given me settings for my novels (Buenos Aires, Madrid, London, Santo Domingo, and other places).
