First, my book.

This crowning and somewhat agonizing achievement, was published by Skyhorse Press in 2014. Since then, it's remained #408 on Amazon's Scuba Diving booklist (it has nothing to do with scuba diving—or horses, for that matter). Anyway, I guess this—and my many blogs—summarizes my 46 years as a writer, and I hope you'll remember when you want something good (and funny) to read.

Never Miss a New Post.



I was an advertising guy for more years than I'd care to admit. I did a lousy impression of Don Draper (an even worse one of Melvyn Douglas). Throughout my career, I wrote short stories (26 in Rosebud Magazine), many blogs, newspaper articles and, of course, my novel "You Can Lead a Horse to Water (But You Can't Make It Scuba Dive)"
