I was born and raised in the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston, Ma. I spent three years in the Army, including one in Vietnam, where I met a newspaper reporter who inspired me to chase news stories. I was a journalist for more than 35 years. For more than half of my career I covered the US military, first for the Military Times newspaper group and later for Military.com. I retired and moved to Ireland in 2016.
Now finishing my first draft of a mystery novel that takes place in Boston in the early 1970s.
