In addition to being a writer, I am a former marketing director with 25 years experience in the television postproduction industry. During those years, I was fortunate to have received two regional EMMY awards for individual achievement in audio mixing for ABC and PBS television specials. I started my writing career with numerous articles for national and international trade magazines covering the field of professional sound recording and video. As a freelance writer, I reviewed fiction for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the Florida Times Union, and the Tampa Tribune. I co-wrote with Lynn Sholes THE SHIELD, THE BLADE (bestselling Kindle book), THE PHOENIX APOSTLES (#1 bestselling Kindle book) along with the Cotten Stone Thriller series: THE GRAIL CONSPIRACY (#1 bestselling Kindle book), THE LAST SECRET, THE HADES PROJECT, and THE 731 LEGACY. My novels have appeared on numerous international bestseller lists and have been translated into over 24 languages.
