“Tall Tales of a Short Childhood”

This collection of tall tales (there’s 9 of them and an epilogue) are mostly true accounts from memory fragments of my youth growing up as a latch-key kid in a bucolic suburb of Chicago during the 1970’s…the tales progress through time and depict the craziest antics of a kid who rarely felt like he fit into any group or community but always tried to find that childhood bond, that unique connection between friends. This collection was inspired by my youngest daughter in winter of 2017. She had been hearing me tell story after story about back when I was a kid, when she said “You know Pop…” that’s me, she calls me Pop, she said, “You should write these stories down so I can tell your grandchildren about them!” I thought that was a pretty good idea and now, about 9 months later, here we have this fun collection of “Tall Tales of a Short Childhood”…Enjoy!



“My BiPolar Reality; How Life Goes On…”

Published 05 December 2014

In my second novel, I tried to share my very personal journey in a creative, unique blend of personal memoirs and a hybrid style of “novel-esque” storytelling to create an entertaining, unique “BiPolar experience” for the reader in a story of redemption and hope everyone will understand. Exploring my own family roots, my nearly lifelong adoration with John Lennon and The Beatles, my career in the entertainment industry, and years of following The Grateful Dead on tour, I’m weaving together the madness of this confusing affliction while equally entertaining with true story adventure in the harmonious web of life in “My BiPolar Reality; How Life Goes On...” Published by The Intrepid Editor Press in December of 2014, distributed by The Pacific Enterprise Group, this title is also available in an audio book version (read by the author) and is being considered for an episodic television program.

Published 10 April 2010

This is a romance road trip novel following the adventures of Izzy Koats, a frustrated accountant who dreams of being a screenwriter, as he follows old Route 66 to Hollywood. Along the way Izzy meets Josie, a Zuni princess who changes his life forever! This is my first novel and was a winner in “The 2009 National Write A Novel in a Month” contest. Micro-published by The Intrepid Editor Press in April, 2010, it’s still available in the second edition printing. Exercising several writing styles in the creation of this book, I view this work as a “cathartic experience and an exercise in creativity” during my painful recovery.
