Not Funny is a fictionalized account of events from 1960 to 1963. What’s the true story behind the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, a game of chicken that that almost destroyed humanity? Not Funny takes place in venues as diverse as Greenwich Village night clubs, Kennedy’s Oval Office, and Nikita Krushshev’s War Room. The story builds to a explosive climax. Chapters from Not Funny will be available here soon.


One reviewer described my novel Controlling Time as a cross between a Philip K. Dick novel and a Jason Bourne Adventure. I’m not going to argue with that. In alternating chapters, Controlling Time tells two entirely different and fast-moving stories. The stories are told from two different perspectives until the thread that holds them together becomes clear. Judge for yourself. Sample the first four chapters.
