He started his study of the short story and the novel at the University of Maryland, but he has learned his craft over a long period of time from writing and reading not only fiction, but the best of the how-to books, and even noticing how movies are put together. Probably not a day goes by that he does not learn something new about the craft or is reminded of something he has forgotten.
Although he has been writing and publishing for thirty years. Only a fraction of his work bears his real name. He has lived in Baltimore most of his life, but has spent time in New York, Los Angeles and Europe.
