My Story

    That’s me, folks.  I know because I’m wearing a nametag—cleverly cropped out—which bears my name.  So who is this snickering fool with more hair on his chest than his head?  And why should you buy his books?

    For starters, I’ve had plenty of practice writing.  I parlayed four glorious years at Dartmouth College and a mind-numbing eternity at Harvard Law School into a thirty-four-year career as an attorney with the Boston office of Nixon Peabody LLP.  If they gave Pulitzers for partnership agreements, I’d have won dozens.

 

     Unfulfilled by the literary possibilities of partnership agreements alone, I began work in the early 1990s on a biography of one of the greatest baseball players of all time.  Published in 1996, Honus Wagner: The Life of Baseball’s Flying Dutchman (McFarland Publishing) won the 1997 Seymour Medal awarded by the Society for American Baseball Research for the best work of baseball biography or history published during the prior year.  Over the next two decades, I wrote or co-wrote three art catalogues; articles on American art and artists for national publications including Fine Art Connoisseur, Antiques & Fine Art and Maine Antique Digest; and At the Threshold of Brilliance: The Brief but Splendid Career of Harold J. Rabinovitz (The Rabinovitz Project, 2017), a biography and catalogue raisonne of the life and work of Harold J. Rabinovitz (1915-1944), a talented New York City artist who met his tragic death in World War II at the threshold of a budding art career.  That, in turn, provided the inspiration for Artist, Soldier, Lover, Muse, my first published novel.

    Married with two children and three grandchildren, I happily divide my time between Oro Valley, Arizona and Natick, Massachusetts.
