I never planned on writing a book. All I wanted was to know how my father deteriorated from a successful Miami undercover narcotics agent to a drug smuggler; how my doting, protective father ended up using cocaine with me.
When I finally believed Dad was no longer a danger to me, I asked him to tell me about his life. He agreed, and I began interviewing him. While my quest was to piece together who my father was, what I found entangled in his story was my own.
After our initial interviews, I had to write it all down. What poured onto the pages first was my story, Midnight Calling: A Memoir of a Drug Smuggler’s Daughter. A year later, I published my father’s story, Breaking Midnight: A True Story, about his life as an undercover narcotics agent-turned-smuggler.
