10 Questions

What is your background?

I’m a suburban dad who loves to write. After a number of years as an attorney in the corporate world, I wrote two mystery-thrillers, Bound to Die, and Poised to Kill, in 2002 and 2004, respectively. Both were very well received, and writing and promoting the books was a great experience. But I had to put writing aside to deal with family responsibilities and health issues. Now, I’m thrilled to resume my writing, and I believe Downfall is my best work yet.
