Just a little more than six months now until THE KENNEDY CONNECTION is out. Then they'll be an ebook novella from Atria approximately six months later and a third book sometime in 2015. All featuring the same character, hard-driving New York Daily News reporter Gil Malloy. Gil is a brilliant reporter, but a bit flawed in some other areas of life. And no - for those of you ask - he's not based on any one in particular. I've met a lot of Gil Malloys over the years. More details on THE KENNEDY CONNECTION to come soon.
