The Incident at Parkside

Amazon Five Star Review

Wonderful Character Development

"A true page-turner! There is suspense, grit, twists, and turns. The characters' development is woven throughout the story. I especially liked Kapernick's compassion and his ability to learn new things during his retirement. This slice of Philadelphia is a terrific read!!"

-Lois and Larry Brandt

Pebbles in the Fire

Pebbles in the Fire, Ted Fink’s latest mesmerizing novel, takes place in Nicaragua and is a story of hope. It revolves around a young boy who was sold into servitude at the age of 5, a poor farmer who desperately wants to have his three-year-old son's cleft palate repaired, and a young American girl taken in by a band of rebels after her parents were killed by federal forces. Together they begin a courageous and perilous journey to reach Managua before the surgeons from Operation Smile leave the country.

The Eelman returns - in a podcast!

Click to download the Kindle version of "In Search of Joel Gomez."


Lately, things have gotten very interesting and exciting. The Eel industry is back in my life.  After forty years it appears that “I’m out on the road again”.  Of course, I say that metaphorically, but recently, with all the excitement about eels I’ve come in contact with Nick Walker, the mayor of Eel Town! 
Eel Town is an International non-profit organization for eel conservation and Nick is a conservation biologist studying all aspects of the American eel and eel conservation around the world.  Nick and I met thru his website. After a few conversations, he invited me to be a guest on his podcast.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.  Nick is interesting, informative, and a great guy.  I think you’ll enjoy the show and find him as likable as I did. You can watch the podcast at:

My novel, In Search of Joel Gomez, is an adventurous story, revolving around the Eel Industry and based on actual events. If you haven’t read it…I hope you will add it to your summer reading list.
