About The Author

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. 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. In 2018 I had two more books published: Dating Again - A Guide to Dating Just When You Thought You Were Done... funny stuff, and my debut novel, The Divine Affliction. Having left dentistry to write full time, I revisited my passion for fiction. I am now happy to present, The Divine Affliction, published by Black Rose Writing. Next up, another psychological thriller, The American Strangler, a tale of how the legal system is strangling America. Did Shakespeare have it right when Daniel the Butcher said, "First we kill all the lawyers?"
