Monroe Twp, New JerseyWeb Site: www.diesel-ebooks.comBiography:
By profession, I work in the realm of eBooks and digital publishing. In 2000, I landed a job working with the famed author Warren Adler ("The War of the Roses" and "Random Hearts") and thus began my descent into the madcap world of eBooks. Since then, I worked at several corporations including Hachette (Time Warner Book Group), Random House and Sony. In 2009, I joined ranks with the maverick indie eBook retailer, Diesel-eBooks.com and happily been there ever since.
I also really dig my side consulting gigs (just for the fun) and am very proud of my work at Dorchester and Scholastic.
In March 2012, I completely went against the grain of my digitally-oriented career and purchased two print magazines with some of my ex-Dorchester buddies, the infamous TRUE STORY (1919) and TRUE CONFESSIONS (1921).
As for my film ambitions, screenwriting is a hobby for me. Scratch that, it's a passion.
Back in January 2011, I enrolled in my first screenwriting class at the NJ Film School and in retrospect, it was one of the best things I ever done in regards to developing myself as a writer. (NJ Film School completely rocks!)
At the moment, I am revising my first feature length script, THE DOLL - a psychological thriller set during the Civil War.
