Writer &

Welcome to my official website.


Here you will find links to my books and other information.


I've written many articles and short stories as well as my books. I've written on historical non-fiction as well as fictional horror-fantasy. (I like the supernatural, witches, vampires, and other cool stuff like that) 


My books are available at and, in paperback as well as Kindle ebook versions.











My speaking engagements are mainly on history, usually of a local nature. (I live at the Jersey Shore) My specialty is the Morro Castle ship disaster of 1934. I'm available most anytime for a presentation.


Email me at for details.











I've written articles on history that have appeared in Gannett's Asbury Park Press, local papers The Coaster and The Coast Star, The Ocean Grove and Neptune Times, Shore View, and Ocean View, as well as national periodicals such as New Jersey Monthly, and Railfan/Railroad.

I also provide editing and proofreading services, specializing in final editing and cleanup. I've been called a fanatic on grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I'm one of those guys who can spot a misspell from across the street. Blessing or curse, it makes for correct spelling and makes your work look good.






This site will feature my books, editing and proofreading services,  and information on my speaking engagements.


I'm currently reworking this site, so bear with me. Links are below.


Simply click on a book cover image below and you will be taken to the Amazon website with full information on the book.
