With more than 40 years as a top executive for major Wall Street firms and his own national financial services organization, Schwartz is a nationally sought after speaker and financial educator. He has traveled the country extensively, and has managed to sleep at least one night in every state of the Union.
His international travel for both business and pleasure has taken him to 38 countries and given him fodder for his thrillers. His wide range of hobbies, from skiing in the Rockies, diving in the Caribbean, or taking the helm of a sailboat all have given him a breadth of life experience that he brings to bear in his writing.
Schwartz is a father and a grandfather. He and his wife Karen, and their cat, Ratdog, enjoy spending their time between their offices in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, and Ormond Beach, Florida.
