His book Confessions of a Repeat Offender is a compilation of his performance stories and poems. His work has appeared in Artists in the Kitchen, The Long Islander, Silver Birch Press, and online at NewYorkCityTalking.com.  He writes: “He’s seen and done what others dream of or fear.  That’s how he lives and that’s what he writes.”  www.AncientMarinerTales
