Hi, and welcome to my site. I’m an author, magazine writer, and producer.
My instincts always lead me to crime and politics, although I somehow managed to spend twenty years in the investigations unit at ESPN. Four books also let me join the NASCAR tour; delve into the history of Vince McMahon for a New York Times best-selling unauthorized biography; chronicle America’s history with steroids; and turn into a cold case cop to investigate the decades-old death of Sonny Liston, the infamous heavyweight champion of the word.
I’ve been lucky to win numerous awards for my magazine work, including from the National Association of Black Journalists (for science writing), the Associated Press Sports Editors (for investigative reporting), and the New York Press Club.
These days, I’m podcasting and producing, as well as writing. You can see Pariah, the film that I executive produced for Showtime, on demand. And a three-part podcast about the life of Wilt Chamberlain will be appearing on Amazon’s Wondery + in the fall of 2023.
Also, watch out for my next book, a true crime partnership with Dick Harpootlian, the South Carolina state senator and attorney for Alex Murdaugh.
If you stop by my historic home in Wilmington, North Carolina, you’ll probably see with me with a laptop on the porch swing. The only moss that grows around here is the Spanish stuff in our front yard.
