What is your book about?

It is my true story of three gamblers who bet on Winning Colors to win the 1988 Kentucky Derby. Our lives became at risk when we learned we had made the wager with suspected members of a Mexican drug cartel. The book depicts owner Eugene Klein, Gary Stevens, D. Wayne Lukas, colorful gamblers, two feisty women, a few members of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, and some surly, scary cartel members.

What inspired you to write your book?

I lived to tell the story!

If you have a business related to your book, tell us about it:

I own interests in three race-horses. It is a money losing business, but it is consistent.

What is a typical day like for you?

I always start early in the morning – with marketing my book – because it is fun! My book is a hobby, but I start everyday working on promoting it. If I have time left I work on commercial real estate or go golfing. Normally I go to the race-track – but I’m can’t now because of the virus- I am probably saving a fortune!

What do you most enjoy about what you do?

I like doing the podcasts about my book! Its creative, like writing, but not so damn hard!

Seabiscuit, Bringing Down the House, did I mention Seabiscuit?

Write in your own voice. Try to make it fun! Hire experts.

That I only drink at night (usually).

What’s next for you?

I am starting a Gambling business with my son (I don’t know where he gets this gambling thing from).
