BOOK EVENT 10/05/22

On October 5th, at 6:30 p.m. I will be at the Newstead Library, 33 Main Street, Akron NY to speak about MOTIVE and answer all questions about the book and writing in general. I will also be introducing the second novel of the Coterie Series, CITY HALL SECRETS. You will find that there is a MOTIVE behind CITY HALL SECRETS, and either, or both, would make excellent Christmas gifts. Hope to see you there.



Book Two is on paper. The editing has begun, and hopefully we will be ready to publish CITY HALL SECRETS by the beginning of August.


As of May 18th, the first draft of the 2nd book was complete. It has gone through some changes, such as a new title, and the path between the beginning to the end has taken a few unexpected turns. But I think you’ll enjoy them as well as I have. We are in the editing phase now which involves three different levels of proof readers and editors. I’m expecting to have a pristine finished copy in 6-8 weeks before I present it to my publisher, NFB Publishing. Then we’ll be planning a book launch, possibly again at the Towne Restaurant.


We are into a new year and I am into a new novel. It is tentatively titled “All Good?”. It features the entire Coterie who are involved in a cause and will focus on the exploits of Harry Doyle as he investigates another murder.

Aside from promoting MOTIVE with interviews on podcasts; Search Warrant With Anna Mydlarz, and On Target with Penny Wolfgang, I have done several book signings in WNY and in Florida. The sales of MOTIVE are starting to level off so I believe that it is the right time to get ALL GOOD? moving to the readers. At this point I have written 142 pages of the first draft, and I am hoping to have the manuscript completed by mid March and ready for publication in April.

So that is where we stand at the end of January, 2022. I will keep you updated on the progress.
