As a writer, I focus my efforts on govermental accountability and public finance -- and an occasional baseball piece.


I have had the chance to tell some pretty interesting stories...

Minor Players, Major Dreams, (University of Nebraska Press). This non-fiction book, written as an author signed to a minor league contract, captures the minor league experience and the men who chase big-league dreams in the little show.

Is This Heaven? The Magic Of The Field of Dreams, (Rowman & Littlefield Publishing). This non- fiction book brings to life the continuing pilgrimage to the Field of Dreams movie site where life imitates art and redemption is found in an Iowa cornfield. (2020 update now available)

Philadelphia: A New Urban Direction, (Saint Joseph's University Press). This non-fiction book presents a comprehensive plan to improve government efficiency and effectiveness to enhance Philadelphia and all municipalities.

Philadelphia, Corrupt And Consenting, (Temple University Press). This non-fiction book explores Philadelphia’s struggle with corruption in a larger context and promotes reform policies to end the city’s legacy as “corrupt and contented.”


I often have something to say about... 

...and when I am disciplined enough to put it into a form that merits distribution, I place it here.  Please read, react, and respond if you have any comments.
