Author bio

I have 4 writing projects going. A rewrite of a novel first composed 1999 to 2005. It is set at the start of the Arab revolt in British Palestine, 1936. The 2nd proj. is fictional memoir concerning my mother and her first love affair. The 3rd is a less serious rock n roll era novel about authenticity in pop music. I invent a band that self destructs at the height of it's short rise in noterierty and a journalist finds out the accepted story is not what it seems. And 4th project is this!: a collection of the short stories generated here. Three so far. Maybe 12 altogether? They are/will be 20th C. historical, to varying degrees (I teach history). I am inspired by the late Stefan Zweig. He's worth looking up and reading, imho.
