Background Information

Born and raised downriver Detroit, I've already lived a life full enough for two. My adventures accumulated early from full-time experiences with paper routes, pumping gas, turning lathes, and stamping truck body panels. I've worked all shifts - days, afternoons, and midnights in all kinds of areas - at the footings of the Ambassador Bridge, in SinCity by the airport, in high-tech software-development computer labs, and as of the last couple of decades, in some relatively very-posh office settings.

My flight ticket from Detroit was in the form of a BSEE from the University of Michigan and a BA in Physics/Mathematics from Albion College. The round trip journey took about four years and included stops in Phoenix Az., & Chicago, Il.

My return to the Motor City brought with it a professional immersion into the automobile business. First as a Tier1 supplier of automated assembly equipment and then directly into the business of origninal equipment manufacturing at one of Detroit's Big 3 companies.

And for the past twenty-years, professionally, I've remained a player in the arena of creating, making, and selling high-volume, human-transporting, machines. And I've loved it! Not every minute of it, mind you, but generally speaking, I have indeed built a lasting, loving relationship, with the business of creating, making, and selling automobiles.

So as you can see, it wouldn't take Detective Columbo to figure out after reading this bit-of-background along with my favorite reads listed below, that my first book was to be an automotive mystery.

So as an 'ode to the industry, I've penned "Changing Lanes: An Automotive Mystery".

My fist novel is written on behalf of the automobile industry, sort of like "Hill Street Blues" was created for the law-enforcement industry and like Michael Crichton's "ER" was for the health-care industry: To bring positive attention to the nation's most critical businesses.

Written from two-decades of intense experience from deep inside the walls of Detroit's most vital, this novel calls deserving attention to an industry that is more enticing, electrifying, and dangerous than anyone outside of the industry might otherwise appreciate.

It is written for you, the curious reader, who may never really know a love of the automobile industry, but whom nonetheless is intrigued with its romance and its effervescence. It is also written for you, the amateur sleuth, the “puzzle person,” the mystery reader, who loves a thrilling chase, using clues to catch the crook. It is also and especially written for you, the automotive aficionado — you extraordinary people whose DNA now includes the makeup and the marvels of the automobile business.

I hope you will enjoy it. And if you do, or if you do not, I hope that you will let me know.

Additional Information

A few of my favorite reads include Crichton's Airframe, The Great Train Robbery, Timeline, The Andromeda Strain, and Disclosure. I've enjoyed Patterson's Detective Cross series but was thrilled by The Jester, and his two-book series of When the Wind Blows and The Lakehouse (a genetic experiment goes awry leaving a 'litter' of superior intellect, flight-enabled children). Other favorite fictions include Follett's Code to Zero, Skyhook by John J. Nance, and Dan Brown's other great novel, Deception Point. With Italian family roots transplanted from the coal mines of West Virginia, I was touched by the memoir October Sky from Homer H. Hickman Jr. I've been diligent about keeping up with non-fiction and remain bettered by Covey's 7-Habits series, and inspired by the uplifting tutorials in the Power of Intention series by fellow-Detroit author, Dr. Wayne Dyer. Guts, by one of the greatest our industry will ever see - auto-baron Bob Lutz, and Straight from the Gut by GE's Jack Welch, are two of my favorite professional non-fictional pieces.
