About Joseph

I was born and raised in New York City, where I returned after graduating from the College of Wooster in Ohio and the University of Michigan Law School; and spent three years as an undercover agent with the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (the precursor of the Drug Enforcement Administration).

For the next thirty five years, I worked as a criminal defence attorney, representing murderers, drug dealers, thieves and at least one serial killer. When New York State restored the death penalty in the nineties, I was one of a select group of lawyers given special training to represent capital defendants, which I did on several occasions, including winning an acquittal for a man accused of committing a double murder.

Not too long ago, I decided to ‘run from the law’ and I began writing fiction.

These days I live and write in rural upstate New York with my antique dealer wife, Sandy.
