My new novel, MURDER IN PALM BEACH: The Homicide That Never Died, was traditionally published in December by Pegasus Books of San Jose, Cal. It's based on a highly sensational murder in 1976 in Palm Beach, by which a tough guy who was innocent was railroaded into prison and was released 15 years later. I learned that a PB Post reporter discovered in 1987 who the real murderer was, and the high-ranking Washington politician behind it. Ghost-wrote a short book. Had an autobiographical novel published via print-on-demand (iUniverse, received Editor's Choice). Other than that, I run to my computer after reading editorials by right-wing columnists and dash off scathing emails to said scribes. Occasionally I lambaste, or plead with, a politician over an issue. Have in mind a novel about how the pharmaceutical industry is greatly harming the health of the western world with statin drugs -- if I can find for a collaborator a sympathetic person who worked in the industry.
