I was a psychologist in private practice in Toronto, Ontario until the age of 50. I left to become a writer. In 1999 I wrote my first book which is a memoir called TOO CLOSE TO THE FALLS. It is about my life from age four to fourteen. I worked full time from the age of four and delivered narcotics for my father's drug store with a black delivery car driver. The book is mostly about our adventures. To my infinite surprise it was on the Canadian best seller's list for 172 weeks and was published in several countries. It has been chosen by 'Now Magazine' as one of the ten best books of the decade.
With the success of TOO CLOSE TO THE FALLS I received hundreds of letter asking me 'What happened next?' This spurred me on the write volume two of my memoirs called AFTER THE FALLS 2009. ( 2010 in America) It covers my life in the 60's from age 13-21. I was arrested, caused a three alarm fire on my first job, and was investigated by the FBI. That is what happened without mentioning the family troubles!
Between writing my memoirs I decided to make us of a ph.d I'd done in another life time on 'Darwin's influence on Freud' so I wrote a Freudian thriller called SEDUCTION. (2005) It was also on the best seller's list and has been translated into several languages and was just nominated in Germany by 'Der Spiegel Magazine' as mystery of the year.
