Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I am an author, screenwriter, and small boat sailing instructor. My Las Vegas crime novel, "Joey's Place," is set in 1970 in the days when there was still open desert along the Strip, Frank and Dino ruled the showrooms, the casinos took care of their own problems, and law enforcement picked up the pieces. If they could find them. Available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, "Joey's Place" can also be ordered at book stores.

"Joey's Place" available at Amazon and B&N

Purchase in either paperback or ebook formats. Visit my website for ordering information.

September, 1970. The Las Vegas valley has a little over 200,000 residents. There are still trailer parks, motels, motor courts, and open desert along the Strip. The casinos take care of their own problems and the law picks up the pieces. If they can find them.

After four years, Howard Hughes still occupies the top floor of the Desert Inn's St.…
