I took a couple of worthwhile detours on my way to becoming a crime fiction writer.

I started out as a NYS Supreme Court Probation Officer, a job that helped me see things from a criminal’s point of view— and let me peer into their minds’ many dark alleys.

Working with ethically-challenged rascals prepared me well for the caliber of people I met in my next career— advertising. That is where I learned how to craft stories that draw readers in and keep them engaged.

Unwitting Accomplice is my debut novel.
