The New York Times describes my novels as “money porn,” “a red-hot franchise,” and “glittery thrillers about fiscal malfeasance.” Through fiction I explore the dark side of money and focus on the motivations of those who have it, want more, and will steamroll anybody who gets in their way.
I wasn’t always an author. I spent most of my career in private wealth management with several brokerage firms, primarily Morgan Stanley, and with a registered investment adviser in New York City. Back then, I always thought the people of Wall Street and their clients—smart, goofy, the complete spectrum from good to evil—would make great characters in novels.
But now with the coming release of my first non-fiction book, Hunters and Skinners, I think you will find that fact is scarier than fiction. I use stories to illustrate techniques that could save you from financial predators…like the time I spent 30 seconds on a background check and helped prevent a friend from losing $200,000 in a scam.
