My book is drawn from my experiences growing up in Washington, D.C. during the 70s and 80s as the son of prominent lawyers. My father was one of Richard Nixon’s attorneys during the Watergate era and, for decades after that, in connection with the Nixon tapes case. I had a predetermined future governed by entitlement and prosperity but, at the age of 5, I was diagnosed with dyslexia.

Rich Boy Cries for Momma is a coming-of-age novel that is set during the period of D.C.’s now legendary hardcore music scene and follows my boot prints - the privileged son turned punk rocker - as I carve an understanding of the world as only I see it.

A disparate cast of characters - from junkies, gangsters and jocks, to the kids of diplomats, the girl next door and the boy who suffers from fecalphilia - become entangled in a subculture of betrayal, hypocrisy and, eventually, murder.
