BRIEF BIO: I owned the first health club in Massachusetts which was in Quincy, MA, called “President City Health Club.”
I owned the second health club on Cape Cod called “Preston’s Health Spa.”
I won Mr. USA in the 1980’s in Kansas City in the 1980’s..and placed second in the Mr. Universe which was held in Las Vegas in 1998.. These were “Natural” contests.
I was an undefeated amateur boxer in Boston, MA. (17-0)and got out of the business for all the reasons in “Room Full of Killer’s.”
“ROOM FULL OF KILLERS” won an “Irwin Award” for best fiction of 2017. The Boston Globe ran a brief article about my book last winter and it was bought out immedietely..I’m on my second printing..
