I earned a B. A. Degree from the University of Texas in Austin, majoring in political science and minoring in history. Afterwards I passed my stock broker's exam and worked for a time at a brokerage house before returning to school. Upon getting my legal assistant certification from UCLA, I worked at a law firm in Los Angeles. Successful stock market investments allowed me to retire early and to pursue two dreams, writing and foreign travel, and I have since traveled extensively and frequently to Europe.
I enjoy the cosmopolitan bustle, sidewalk cafes, the museums of Berlin, Rome, Vienna, London, Budapest, and Paris. Many of these capitals find their way into my stories of intrigue..."Murder Without Pity" (Paris), "The Killing Ploy" (London, Berlin, Paris, and Lugano) and the soon-to-be-released "Darkness and Blood" (London and Paris) and "Winston Churchill's Renegade Spy" (London and Zurich). I'm also researching for a fifth novel, this one to be set in 1946 Berlin.
