About Me

Led an earlier life as a political activist,physician, psychiatrist, author, and house designer/builder/unlicensed architect. Present activities consist of playing alto sax, playing tennis, cooking every weekend,listening to my favorite jazz station while working (,and, with my wife, Judith, co-pubublishing The Permanent Press for the past 31 years, which puts out 12-14 titles annually of award winning quality fiction. I also write a monthly blog column about the business of books:

Why do you write?

Restlessness, boredom, genetics, curiosity, wanting to discover exceptional novels from among the 5,000 submissions we receive each year.

Any favorite authors? Books?

The books written by our authors. Far too many to single out a few for special praise.
