I grew up in and around New York City, traveled extensively, then returned for good in the mid-’80s.
I have a B.S. from Northwestern and an M.S. from Columbia Journalism School, and have worked as an editor, political campaign staffer, actor, voiceover artist, stand-up comic and other jobs too numerous to mention… but my first love has always been putting words on paper.
I have been a professional writer since high school, producing novels, short stories, plays, film and TV scripts, essays, reviews, journalism – I like to joke that I’ve done just about everything except haiku.
