Sorry to have been away from the website–and most everything else–for a while, but some serious health problems kept me otherwise occupied for most of the last six months.

In the interim I did manage to locate an agent for my next book project, a shadow history of performance enhancing drugs in horse racing. The time frame for most of the book is 1900 through the disqualification of Dancer’s Image in the 1968 Kentucky Derby, followed by some suggestions about how best to deal with the problem today. If you have any stories or other information you’d like to share, please send me an email at:

I also joined a group of authors who write both fiction and nonfiction about horses. Check us out at: My next post is due March 1.

Finally, my web designer and I are reworking the website. If it is nonfunctional when you visit, please check back later. Thanks!
