I currently live with my wife, Uraiwan, and three dogs in a tiny village in Issan, Thailand. In 2004, I took a year off from teaching in Manhattan where I lived on 4th Street and would go to Starbucks in nearby Astor Place every day. I substantially wrote three books that year, although two of the novels -"Jack" and "Desperate Days" - took years to complete. I also wrote a full-color, illustrated children's book The Lucky Lobsters. Currently, (2018) I'm writing a novel called "American Jihadist" about the Syrian war. I taught English, Global and US History, and Journalism, in Manhattan high schools over 13 years and, before that, did court reporting news in the Boston area over ten years. I worked for the Lowell Sun for nearly two years before then. Currently - besides writing novels - I promote other authors on various of my sites and have a Facebook group - Friends Who Share Best Publishing Practices. If you are a published author you can apply to be a member. We love Rawai Beach, Phuket - it is home to hundreds of ex-pats from all over, and it is quite an international town because of that and the tourists who visit year round but mainly during the 'high season' which is November through April when the monsoons begin. We have been living in Thailand since 2015. To sign up for my email list, please go to http://eepurl.com/dkTcIH. You will receive occasional updates about my writing, occasional free chapters and books, and a newsletter featuring author interviews and publishing news.
