I'm a psychologist and author of two novels: "Land of Dreams,""Hobgoblins" and six published short stories. You can find out more about my novels, psychology career and personal life at my website,

Background Information

I'm the son of immigrant parents who escaped pogroms in 1920s Russia to find their "Land of Dreams." I fulfilled my dual dreams of becoming a psychologist and writer of short stories and novels. I'm committed to helping people overcome their personal obstacles (whether patients or characters in my writing) and to fulfill their ambitions. I believe that all of us should share in America's wealth and no one should suffer from want regardless of national background, ethnicity, or gender. I am also dedicated to doing whatever is possible to achieve understanding between all peoples and international peace among all nations.

Birth Place
Bronx, NY USA

I'm a licensed psychologist who received my doctorate from Columbia University, where I later taught. I also taught at the City University.
I was a finalist in a small press novel competition and was in third place in an international short story competition.

Additional Information

My novel, "Land of Dreams," is a tribute to the struggles of immigrants to fulfill themselves. The novel was based on my family. My most recent novel, "Hobgoblins," is about a plot by financiers to secretly support a third party presidential candidate who, unknown to his supporters, plans to double-cross them by becoming an American Hitler. Only three people can thwart these plots: a psychologist who once treated the presidential candidate, a muckraking journalist and a person who is the source of the hobgoblin nightmares that pursue both the presidential candidate and the psychologist.

I'm currently writing a sequel to "Land of Dreams," which follows the family through the second World War. I'm revising another novel based on my older brother's childhood and military service. He was a World War II fighter pilot who was lost in combat overseas while still nineteen. It is entitled, "Duty Status: Whereabouts Unknown."
