I was born in Yorktown, Virginia (site of the decisive battle of the Revolutionary War) and received an engineering degree from the University of Virginia and an MBA from Carnegie-Mellon University.

After school, I moved to Dallas, Texas, to work in finance at American Airlines and went on to become chief financial officer for a number of high-tech companies, including Sabre, Trilogy, Vignette, and Workfront. At one point, we sold a company I worked for, and since then, I’ve split my time between working as a freelance CFO and writing Joe Robbins financial thrillers.

With each novel, Joe works for a different company, and his knack for finding truth in the numbers always lands him in a new batch of trouble. I rely on my experiences as a CFO to incorporate credible fraud schemes and other corporate malfeasance into the plots. In my corporate life, I’ve come across fewer corpses than Joe, but I never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

I love writing Joe Robbins thrillers. They are the kind of books I like to read, chock-full of action and suspense and topped off with a trace of romance.
