I hold a BA in psychology and DMD with a specialty of endodontics. Engaged in writing for the past thirty-five years, I have written for professional journals as well as having produced several non-fiction books. After three self-published books, I was fortunate to have made publishing deals for my most recent non-fiction titles: The Sexless Marriage Fix – Basic Health Publications and From Waiting Room to Courtroom - How Doctors Can Avoid Getting Sued – Jay Pee Brothers Medical Publishers. Both of these books were release in 2016.
Having left dentistry to write full time, I revisited my passion for fiction. I am now happy to announce The Divine Affliction will be released September 27th 2018 by Black Rose Writing. Maintaining a social media presence, and having the time to promote my books, I look forward to engaging in the active selling of my stories.
COMPLAINING is how I got my start in writing. Every day, at lunch with my healthcare colleagues, I would complain about the way healthcare professionals could be sued so easily. The lawyers incessantly advertised how all the evil doctors did patients wrong and how much money one could get by suing them. One doctor, tired of hearing me complain, said, "Why don't you write a book about it." And I did. On that topic, three to be exact: The American Strangler, Bedside Manner and From Waiting Room to Courtroom.
I like to incorporate humor into my fiction and non-fiction as a means to get points across. In my lectures, I do the same. In my fiction, I strive for some semblance of literary content. However, when reading the real masters of literary fiction, I am humbled and know my place.

Four thousand years ago, the destiny of humankind was imprinted on scrolls cherished by learned men. The relevance remained lost until now.
When Derrick Daniels, Justice Department attorney, reluctantly investigates the possibility that rogue Arab states are developing deadly diseases as a terrorist weapon against the United States, assassins and inexplicable forces threaten his existence. The ancient law collides with contemporary villainy to threaten the destiny of humankind. Every living thing is at risk, from wild animals that become road kill to the most elite members of every society.
Is societal violence random, is it related to one special device, or is there a combination of plots acting to bring an end to the idyllic life that used to define the American way? Is our condition born of the acts of enemies or the evolution of our own behaviors?
Prions, the cause of Mad Cow Disease and the human counterpart Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease, become a deadly biological weapon, illicit drugs become chemical weapons and revenge from a past war becomes motivation to destroy America. Derrick gets deeply involved in assessing vile plots. In a surprise ending, we ask, “Does he save us?”
