About

After a brief and unhappy career as a lawyer, I’ve been a very happy freelance writer for many years. The author of thirty-five books, I also write the weekly Whodunnit column in the Toronto Star. I’ve reviewed jazz for the Globe and Mail, and reviewed movies on CBC Radio for twenty-five years. I’ve written over thirty books on subjects that include biography, crime fiction, law and court cases, and sports. Not surprisingly, jazz, movies, and crime turn up frequently in the life of my main protagonist, Crang. Like him, I live in Toronto.
