About Me...

     I write Cozy Mysteries and am the author of The Hot Dog Detective series about Mark MacFarland, a former police detective who now operates a hot dog cart… but who still keeps finding himself drawn into solving murders. Starting in 2022, I am working on a new series, set in the fictional California coastal town of Crystal Cove. This new series will feature Sally O’Brian, a mature woman whose husband was killed in a car accident. As a result of that accident, Sally now sees ghosts, for whom she has to solve the mystery of their demise.



     For many years, I worked in the corporate world as a consultant and a trainer. I’ve taught the most hardened, cynical, and difficult population on the planet: supervisors and managers of large businesses. In that thankless capacity, I wrote and published a series of management development textbooks for businesses.


     My job did have some perks. My career has taken me to many parts of the world. I’ve spent large hunks of my life in New York, New Jersey, California, Colorado, Texas, Alaska, Scotland, Mexico, the Philippines, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia. I’ve sojourned in Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, England, France, Canada, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Japan, Illinois, Georgia, Florida…oh, the list goes on and on. Having lived in so many diverse cultures, I’ve acquired a great tolerance and appreciation of people of different cultures and backgrounds. Perhaps that is one of the factors that inspires MacFarland’s understanding of the various groups that make up the homeless and underclass of American society.



Please leave comments and reviews

     In the course of writing a series of what ultimately will be twenty-seven books, it is possible to get things mixed up, forget details, or just make mistakes. While I have a very sensitive soul, I have learned that one needs to be able to take criticism, feedback, and suggestions for improvement. If you have any of these, please feel free to let me know. I look forward to your comments.


     Remember, if you love any of my books, please consider leaving reviews of them on book sites like AmazonBarnes and NobleKoboiTunes, and Smashwords. It doesn’t have to be complicated – even just a few lines would be wonderful. I am so grateful to all of you who have already posted your reviews.
