About the Author
I am retired and living in the Villages, FL. with my wife, Ursula. Our son, Christopher, is a schoolteacher who resides in Ewing, New Jersey. I was controller for one of the world’s largest architectural firms for almost 40 years and worked 16 years in Washington, DC and 24 years in New York City. Although pursuing accounting as a career path, I have always had a great interest in creative writing. I have authored more than 200 songs, writing both the music and/or lyrics and collaborating with numerous writers and musicians through the years. I signed 39 publishing agreements with a host of publishers and almost realized a cut on Vanessa Williams’ “Sweetest Days” album; however, 39 times my dreams did not come to fruition. I have written many poems and short stories and one screenplay. I was poet laureate of my high school and college. I love movies and had seen over 1,500 by the age of 13. I have always enjoyed horror and from an early age wrote numerous short stories in that genre. Some of those early stories are in this book. My favorite horror movies are Halloween, Night of the Living Dead, and the Evil Dead. My favorite movie of all time Is Frank Capra’s It’s A Wonderful Life with James Stewart. My favorite authors are Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, John Sandford, Michael Connelly, Robert B. Parker , Clive Cusler, James Patterson, Jeffery Deaver, Dean Koontz, Edgar Allen Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, James Lee Burke, Lee Child and Richard Matheson.
