|Avon, CT, United States
|I'm a former advertising copywriter and executive, and a writer of novels (17 published), essays and short stories. I’m also a fine woodworker and house designer, a musician and single-handed sailor. I’ve led a mystery writers conference (CrimeCONN) for nine years. In my seventies, my hobbies include remembering where I left my iPhone, the dates of our anniversary and grandchildren's birthdays, and names of famous entertainers. Dogs are my favorite people.
|I'm interested in nearly everything, though my focus on mollusks wanes after the Jurassic.
|Blade Runner. The Departed. Spinal Tap.
|I play rock 'n' roll, listen to select jazz and classical, and hide from opera.
|Presumed Innocent, Mystic River, Gone Girl, everything by Hammett, Ross MacDonald, Chandler, and most literature of pre-war 20th century.
