The novels I've written under my own name involve ordinary people caught up in a web of intrigue in foreign locales.
I have been published in 29 countries and my books have been sold in most of the countries in the world. Besides books written under my name , I have also written books under the names of other authors, including Harold Robbins and Gary Jennings.
Check out the low budget Indie film -- Night of the Naked Dead -- on Wikipedia that I wrote, produced and directed. We beat 100 to 1 odds and got a distribution deal despite the fact no one involved had any experience in making a movie. By the way -- it's more of a "cozy" mystery than a thriller despite the title. There is no full frontal or sexual nudity or really gross violence . . . horror fans will think the movie is a bore. I love old fashioned mysteries and that's what it is.
