I’m writing to announce the launch of Necessary Decisions, the first book in my new Redemption Series.

Necessary Decisions features Detective Gino Cataldi and his partner, Hector “Ribs” Delgado. It takes place in Houston, Texas.

A Thriller That Won’t Let Go

A cop who pushes the limits of the law…

A good man struggling to feed his family…

A biotech executive who has everything a man could want…

A ruthless band of kidnappers…
They all come together in a thriller you won’t be able to forget.

Everyone has decisions to make. This one could cost Gino his badgeand a young girl her life.

Just when you think you know everything—everything changes.

Necessary Decisions is available as an ebook, priced at 5.99. The print book will be available early next year. Links to Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords are included. It will be live on Apple, Kobo, and Google in the next day or so.

Short description:

Gino Cataldi is a man hanging on by a thread. Cancer took his wife, and drugs put his son in rehab. All he has left is his badge.

When a teenage girl is kidnapped it brings back nightmares from the worst case he ever worked—the one that tore his life to shreds and forced him out of Philadelphia.

Gino doesn’t want this case but he knows he has to take it. Not just to save the girl, but to earn redemption for what went wrong in Philly.

  • This blog will be a little different from many you see. Contrary to the characters in my books, I don’t really kill people, or catch those who do, so the blogs might be about reading, or writing, or animals. These are the things I have great passion for. It might also contain posts about food, or ancestry, or substance abuse. My oldest son is a great cook. My daughter is a genealogist ( and my youngest son is a recovering drug addict. He has been clean for three years, and runs a rehab center (

    I hope you enjoy the posts, and please let me know what you think.
