Miles Bradshaw, the dot-com billionaire owner of Pittsburgh’s first NBA franchise, hires private detective Jeremy Barnes to look into what appears to be a simple case of harassment of one of the team’s players.  But when Jeremy (JB to his friends) begins his investigation, the case proves to be anything but simple, eventually involving a local businessman with suspected criminal ties, a major FBI task force, a computer geek in California and a mob boss in Erie.

Along the way, JB, who can quote Shakespeare as quickly and easily as he can land a solid left jab, uses his wits and his ever-present sense of humor to wend his way through a cast of characters who range from the ridiculously inept to the ruthlessly lethal.

As Hard Court unfolds, there are numerous surprises and plot twists, culminating in a dramatic confrontation that neither JB nor the reader could have predicted.

Both my parents were readers. I’m talking stacks-of-books-on-their-nightstands readers. So it’s no surprise that at an early age, I, too, became an avid reader. Everything from sports books (especially baseball) to Nancy Drew to the Hardy Boys to almost anything about distant and exotic places.

Although I’ve always enjoyed putting words on paper, the writer in me didn’t fully emerge until I retired after three decades of teaching high school English. I quickly wrote two books aimed at middle school readers, at which point my wife urged me to try a novel for adults. As is usually the case, Cynthia’s idea was a good one.

Over the next few years, I wrote several books about Pittsburgh private eye Jeremy Barnes. I took a brief hiatus from the detective genre to write Small Talk and The Backup Husband. Now I’m back and will be releasing my first Jeremy Barnes novel, Hard Court, on April 11.

In our spare time, Cynthia and I enjoy reading (of course), going to live theater productions, watching reruns of favorite TV shows such as “Sports Night” and “Gilmore Girls,” and traveling to some of those distant and exotic places I used to read about as a child. So far, we’ve been fortunate enough to walk in the sands of Waikiki, swim in the warm waters of the South Pacific and share a romantic dinner in Paris.

I love interacting with my readers and getting their input on my characters and stories. Please feel free to contact me via my website.

Get into the Arena


From stunning environment descriptions to well developed characters, Arena is an incredible book, jam packed with action.
Attractive, fierce, female warrior anyone? Gladiator fights? Virtual reality and gaming? This book has all of it.
Kali is a warrior in the virtual realms. She is a professional gamer in a virtual world where you die and kill on people’s screens. Its a sport with its slew of sponsors, manipulations, celebrity status and all the glitz and glam of media.
Kali as the first female captain must lead her team to victory or else..
But its not easy. Coping with her team mate’s death and trying to unite her team is proving difficult than she thought.
And then there is the new recruit. Stone cold and indifferent, he gets on Kali Ling’s nerves.
What with the stress of facing off an unbeatable team, trying to lead her team to victory and battling sleepless nights, Kali finds solace in virtual arena. But there’s a risk. Could the very thing that’s her cure become her addiction and a downfall?

Kali must overcome her weaknesses, if she hopes to lead her team to victory. And she quickly learns that balance is the key.

If you love video games, Roman gladiators, badass protagonists, and depictions of future, go for this book.
I wouldn’t call it a dystopia.Nor a utopia.Its a mix.Balanced, if you will.
The heroine, Kali Ling, is not the modest, self sacrificing protagonist that’s become a norm of the Young Adult Novels. No. She feels pride and anger too. And she is motivated enough not to let people trample over her.
Definitely a good read!

My rating :10/10
