What initially got you interested in writing?
I wanted to find a creative outlet that would allow me to explore and express in an entertainment context certain humanistic, spiritual and socio-political topics that were important to me. In my novel, Miracle Man, which is a psychological/conspiracy/medical thriller—I was able to do this.
What genres do you write in?
Thrillers are what I enjoy writing—particularly thrillers that deal with psychologically interesting characters who are involved in things that have tremendous impact on the lives of large numbers of people.
What drew you to writing these specific genres?
Thrillers allow me to create action packed plots and subplots with complex characters and underlying themes.
How did you break into the field?
By sitting down and starting to write and pushing myself to do the best work I could.
What do you want readers to take away from reading your works?
I want my readers to enjoy my work, to find it engrossing and entertaining. But I also want them to think about the important subjects that underscore the action oriented plots.
What do you find most rewarding about writing?
The opportunity to express myself and create something that lives independent of me.
What do you find most challenging about writing?
Doing all of the research required to make the book interesting and realistic and striving to keep the reader wanting to read “just one more chapter”.
What advice would you give to people wanting to enter the field?
Try to have a really original idea for your plot and your protagonist.
What type of books do you enjoy reading?
I mostly enjoy thrillers.
Is there anything else besides writing you think people would find interesting about you?
I’ve had a very interesting career as an entertainment/media lawyer and in that capacity I’ve represented many famous music artists—so, I have more than a few good anecdotes about them.
What are the best ways to connect with you, or find out more about your work?
