Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, I now reside in Long Beach, N.Y. I worked in New York City as an Art Director for 3 different magazines one of which was UFO magazine. I've been writing short stories for the past 10 years and found Time Travel to be my favorite topic. In the near future I intend to publish at least one more book on Time Travel with Smashwords.
