Books

I am the author of 11 books. Ten have been published, and one is a completed manuscript commissioned by a publisher that shuttered its travel-book division before my work hit the printing press. (I hold out hope that this book will someday see daylight in an e-format.)

Chapter contributions:

I wrote the New Jersey chapters for the 2008 Embassy Cruising Guide from Long Island to Cape May. I updated the chapters for the 2010 edition as well as the 2012 edition, and updated the Connecticut, Long Island Sound and New Jersey chapters for the 2014 edition. I also updated the Florida edition published in 2016.
