Since most of my readers are very fond of my ongoing mystery series protagonist Milan Jacovich (thank goodness!)—seventeen titles so far and #18 finished and submitted to my publisher—and have accepted my newest crime-solving hero Dominick Candiotti (via “The Strange Death of Father Candy” and “Wet Work”), it got me… Read more »

Now that September is bringing Northeast Ohio August heat, I’m beginning my round of book signings for the new one, WET WORK, featuring Dominick Candiotti. I’m working diligently, as I always do, but even a novelist has to sit back, relax, and do something else. I’m a movie lover, and… Read more »
