I am a storyteller.
Sometimes, I put those stories on paper.
That makes me a writer.
When they get published, I become an author.
But, essentially, I am a storyteller.
My stories are about people whose lives are altered because of some fissure in the fabric of history; seemingly random occurrences that send ripples through time. A work of art that disappeared seventy years ago, the reappearance of a white-skinned tribe from the time of the Incas, a treasure hidden by the first witch of Ireland, a hundred-year-old broken covenant: each of them brought tribulation and transformation to contemporary lives.
There are many such historical aberrations.
When one collides with you, I will be here to tell your story.
A friend once called me a Renaissance Man. I’ve always considered the late George Burns the true Renaissance Man. After all, he started a singing career at age 90. Following in his footsteps, I started a writing career at 75.
George lived to be 100.
I have 25 years to tell stories.
I’ve been a lawyer, a sawyer, inventor and singer; an entrepreneur, provocateur, historian and thespian; gourmet cook, wine snob, race car driver and fishing guide; an explorer, a dreamer, story teller and writer. I like reading and baseball and conversation and manhattans. Born in the wine country of California, raised on a farm in Wisconsin, earned a law degree at Harvard. Married to Kathy. Father of three. Grandfather. Great grandfather. I think I’ve finally figured out what I want to do when I grow up, be an author of
History and Mystery and Thrillers.
