Writing Update October 2018

Welcome to my new subscribers and I hope you are enjoying The Body Thieves.

I’d like to remind everyone that one of the most important things a writer can obtain are good reviews on Amazon or Goodreads. If you have enjoyed my stories, please don’t be shy to leave me a review, they are greatly appreciated.

I’m off to Florida today to do a few book signings and enjoy the sunshine. I suffer from psoriasis. The sun, salt water and humidity is my saviour. I will be at Annett’s Book Nook on Ft Myers Beach Sat, 3rd, Noc, 11-2. Then- Macintosh Books on Sanibel 3-5.

I’m still waiting for placement for – Waiting for Morning Time. We will get it published one way or another within the next several months.

I am well into the third book in the Jackson Walker series – Sawgrass Savannah. I would expect to have that out later in the new year.

My newest project revolves around the man in the picture above Chef Stephen Rakoczy. His story is remarkable. We are going to create the plot line around his culinary prowess. I’ll list some of his major achievements below. At the end of the book, we will include all of the recipes mentioned in a form of a cookbook. Cookbooks are hot right now– I’m never shy to hop on a bandwagon.


*Trained in Budapest Hungary, where he was shot in the head escaping communist tyranny.

*When recovering in England, he met the Queen Mother, who hired him to cook in Buckingham Palace.

*Emigrated to the U.S. and settled in Cleveland, where he was hired as head chef at a ritzy golf club- where he met JFK.

*Stephen ended up being The special events coordinator for 4 presidents at the White House and abroad. There are a lot of great stories surrounding this time.

*He was the chef for King Faisal of Saudi Arabia.

*Brigadere General/Admiral in charge of food services for the U.S. Armed forces.

*The picture included, shows his Gold Medal from the World Culinary Olympics. He is the first American citizen to attain such an honour.

Most of you know me from my crazy sometimes warped fiction writing. Why am I doing this? I asked myself the same question, but after months of deliberating and talking to my agent and friends, I just couldn’t turn it down. It is a remarkable and compelling story.

I will be meeting with Chef Steve next week, and hopefully will be writing away at full steam.

That’s all for now– Happy reading.



Please share with your tribe!
