When the money talks…I listen. Always have. I'm fascinated by what can go wrong and spent years on Wall Street dealing with the problems of wealth. Morgan Stanley, Paine Webber, and Kidder Peabody—I've been around the block. Back then, my job was to protect clients from market disasters.

Today as an author, I'm still asking what can go wrong. Only now, my goal is to take readers on a thrilling ride through the wilds and what-if of Wall Street. The characters in my stories, whether I'm writing fiction or non-fiction, are perfect fodder for an irreverent look at what happens behind the scenes in the bare-knuckled world of finance.

My first novel, Top Producer, received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. It was a Fall 2009 pick of both SmartMoney magazine and the Today show. And it has been published in eight languages, nine if you include Australian. :)

The Gods of Greenwich falls into the thriller category, but it’s really a story about keeping up with the Joneses. Something we all understand, right? My characters just happen to own hedge funds and are dying to join the Greenwich glitterati. Readers will disappear into a different world, and I hope, learn a little, laugh a little, and lose themselves in the story.

Before becoming a writer, I built a career in private wealth management at Morgan Stanley, Paine Webber, and other iconic Wall Street institutions. I graduated from Harvard College in 1980 and earned an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1986. I am active with the American Foundation for the Blind as a member of the Board of Trustees.
