Thank you for taking the time to browse around my site. I hope it will provide some information about me and my books. In December of 2008 I ventured into the genre of mystery fiction for the first time when Fatal Gamble was published. The response has been very gratifying. I am always glad to receive feedback from my readers. Please feel free to contact me by posting comments here on my web site or by email. I hope you all enjoy the ride with Gallagher!
