A former journalist, I recently closed my law practice so that I could write children’s books full-time. I realized that my teenage daughters were reading mostly fantasy, dystopian-themed novels. With the world so rich with the good, the bad and the unbelievable, I found this to be sad. So I decided to start writing books for kids focusing more on the real world – either through biographies or novels with a strong dose of reality.

As an attorney, I focused on assisting senior citizens with their problems. As a journalist, I mostly covered the law, including some of the biggest cases in the country: OJ Simpson, Rodney King and Bush v. Gore, the case that decided the 2000 presidential election.

Now, as I write children’s books, I am experiencing the same adrenaline rush I got as a journalist. I am writing biographies about truly extraordinary people – the Groundbreakers of the world. As for my Mandalay Hawk novels, unfortunately, the world faces too many monumental problems. Global warming is public enemy #1. Sometimes kids are the world’s best hope. KRAAP – Kids Revolt Against Adult Power. It’s part of a novel now. Someday, it may be reality.

I live in New York City with my wife and two daughters and our dog, Hazel.
