More About the Author
I am from Haverhill, MA where I grew up, went to school and met my wife. Linda, and I now live in Glastonbury, Ct. close to where three of our four children live. I have a masters degree from Northeastern University, Boston, MA and an undergraduate degree from Merrimack College, No Andover, MA. I enjoy golf, chess, computers and reading.
Recently, I completed and published my second book, Stained River. My first, Cold Water Crossing, was published in January of 2009. It is factually based on a true New England double murder that occurred in 1873. In May, 2009, I began work on Stained River, a novel of intrigue and adventure, set in the remote Amazon. It is fast paced and woven around topics found in today's news stories.

The plot is quick and the writing itself is very good. The only thing I took issue with in this novel, was the decision to make every character have some kind of problem that stopped them from being very likable. While I certainly understand that a good character needs to be flawed, for me, it seemed at times that these characters were almost too flawed, and I couldn't choose on to identify with.
Otherwise, this is fabulously written. The story, in and of itself, is intelligent. Although this is fiction, there is some truth in it and it brings to light some very important issues that the reader can't help but contemplate during the time they spend with this novel.
There are parts of this book that I found I could completely lose myself in. The descriptions used to describe the rainforest and the animals are incredibly beautiful and paint a mental picture not to be rivaled. I liked the suspenseful nature of this story, where you are never certain what will happen next and there is danger around every turn.
I would recommend this book to others that enjoy a thrilling and at the same time thought-provoking read.
