I was born in Shenandoah, PA, educated at Muhlenberg College and Cornell University, taught high school English in Owego, New York, and Los Angeles and La Cañada, CA. For 6 months I was a social worker in the Watts area of Los Angeles. I served in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS MONROVIA, USS OKINAWA, and THE USS INTREPID, where I started what was to become my first novel, THE LAST DETAIL. I've written 13 more since then, including a four-book mystery series under the name Anne Argula. My latest book is my first non-fiction, a parody/self-help/memoir entitled I FEEL BAD ABOUT MY DICK. I've written the scripts for 9 movies, the latest adapted from one of my novels, LAST FLAG FLYING, available on Amazon Prime. I'm currently working on HEAT DEFLECTORS, a collection of 100 short stories.
