Hello Wattpaders!

FINDERS KEEPERS is my first of what will be many, many novels, and so far, so darn good. I debuted at the 2010 NY Comic-Con to great reviews, and the buzz has been building ever since.

If you want to hear what others are saying, including Publishers Weekly and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Association of New Zealand, click here: http://bit.ly/drnmKc

As for FINDERS KEEPERS itself, well ... if you like backpacking buddy stories with lots of humor and adventure, with travel throughout Europe and New Zealand, and some galactic mayhem sprinkled in for good measure, this novel is for you.

And if you enjoy what you read, I hope you'll like it so much that you'll vote for me and help me spread the word.

Hollywood has come knocking on my door before about FINDERS KEEPERS, now it's time to get this movie deal done!

On the personal side, I've been married to my wife, Liz, for more than eight years, have a gregarious dog named Simon, and Liz and I recently became parents to our amazing twin babies, Nate and Abby.

We live in the Forest Hills section of Queens, N.Y., and I spend my days in Manhattan as a public relations specialist for commercial real estate companies. I grew up on Long Island, went to college in Buffalo, N.Y., and spent my last semester in Manchester, England, where I had the time of my life.

That time away included a backpacking trip through Europe that inspired FINDERS KEEPERS.

As always, there’s so much more to tell, but I’ll just quit now before I reveal a bit too much of the crazy.

And now with FINDERS KEEPERS sizzling in print I'm plugging away on my second novel, CROSSLINE, and I’ve got at least a half dozen other books just ready to go, waiting for me to let them loose.

I hope you join me for the ride.

It’s gonna be a heckuva good time.

@flashninja Thanks for the note. Always nice to be compared with #TerryPratchett and #NeilGaiman. :) And btw ... more FINDERS KEEPERS on the way. I'm working on two sequels.
