Life is good for Dr. Drew Coleman, a successful young eye doctor  living in Uptown New Orleans, and he knows it. Having met and married  his beautiful medical school classmate, Kate, the two settle happily  into the routine of raising their two young daughters.

Drew’s charmed life is soon shattered by devastating news, causing  him to go on a ten-year transcontinental journey of self-discovery,  during which he explores the nature of God and Man, the divine  inspiration for many of New York’s landmarks and artistic treasures, and  the relationship between the found and the lost souls passing on the  street. He meets a number of memorable characters, including the young  blue-haired runaway, Blue, who renounced her given name when forced to  leave her Minnesota home with her girlfriend, Anna.

In time, he discovers and explains the scientific basis for the  meaning of life, and is finally found, or finds himself, setting the  stage for a bittersweet and memorable ending.

About the Author




My first novel, the award winning Love, Loss, and Lagniappe was inspired by actual events in my life, and utilizes my Medical and Business School background to explore the journey of self-discovery after heartbreaking loss, while revealing the scientific basis for the meaning of life (You’ll have to read it to find out!). 

My next novel, Panicles, explores the price of fame and fortune through the eyes of two families, one wealthy and powerful, the other blue collar, from a chance meeting at a Florida poolside, to the highest levels of politics and power. This sweeping saga of love, war, money, and power leaves each family weighing their duty to their family versus service to their country.

It all leads to a fateful choice—a sacrifice—which could change the course of history.

I live in New York City and New Orleans with my love and inspiration, Lisa, my wife of thirty years (and counting), near our beloved grown children.
