What is your favorite food? Toss-up: pizza, cheeseburgers, sea food platters.

Do you find the time to read? I try to, But between work, promoting the books, and family, I find myself getting tired as bedtime approaches. I am reading the work of a fellow local novelist now.

What’s the reason for your life? Have you figured out your reason for being here yet? I guess that’s all something we have to determine for ourselves. There is no great reason for any of us to be here. It was all a matter of chance, coincidence and astronomical good fortune. I’d like to think that I have something to share with the world to make it a slightly more livable place. So, I would say my reason for being is to communicate to the world through my writing. I hope I have good genes.

If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone dead or alive, who would you ask? Abraham Lincoln, who was not only a giant, but had a wonderful sense of humor and could tell a good story. And Jesus. Whatever you believe, you would certainly learn the truth.

What are your current writing projects now? I have long had on the back burner a novel called COMRADE LOLITA. The story is based on Lolita Lebron and the Puerto Rican nationalists who tried to assassinate Harry Truman and who shot up the House of representatives in the early 50s. It relates well to the terrorist activities of this century and asks the question, why do people commit violent acts in the name of politics? Do they really believe these acts will generate some positive outcome or are they really just childish acts of vindictiveness?
