Norm's writing began while travelling through New Zealand and Australia as a Hypno-therapist with colorful letters to his family of his tales as a hypnotist and the weirdness it attracts. His early years in Toronto were filled with aspirations of the 60's Yorkville music scene, and as a drummer in numerous bands led to a short lived career playing the bars and clubs in the Toronto area. The band Photograph, signed to a recording studio, made some noise on the coast to coast CBC radio show, the Entertainers. In 1973 the band worked with Canadian artist & producer Tony Kosinec, (All Things Come From God), and after legal issues strangled them into submission, they went their separate ways. The band members were George Szabo and Stan Meissner, (Stan later wrote for Céline Dion, LeeAnn Womack, Eddie Money, Rita Coolidge, BJ Thomas, Ben Orr (The Cars), Triumph and Toronto). The life of drugs, sex and rock and roll were over, sad but true. After a few years of travel, he had the bug, and entered the world of management consulting to become a road warrior, and is now a 2 million miler with Delta. Away from home and with the desire to write a novel it began. His first book, "Into the Basement," is a raw, dark thriller, described as "juicy." His second novel of the Kim Bennett series, "Into the Spell," explores the horror of a copy-cat Son of Sam killer and hypnosis. Early 2008, Norm contributed with a short story called "Jumpers," into the horror anthology "From the Shadows." In 2009, Norm developed the screenplay for his novel "Into the Basement," with Nicholas Grabowsky and director J. L. Botelho of Triad Pictures.
In 2010 he released, Blood Bar, a vampire tale and wrote the screenplay for a short horror film, Grotto.
Then in 2011 Norm released, First to Die a sequel to Blood Bar.

In San Francisco, women are disappearing. Three detectives pull Kim Bennett into the game. The hunt for a killer. She goes missing!
This is a raw dark story of sadistic people that pits Kim's physical and mental agility against one of the fastest rising crimes in America, sexual slavery.
This is an adult story that has been described as "juicy."
Update, Into the Basement was written in 2006. The publisher did a horrendous job. I was
disappointed with the release. The publisher assigned the novel to a religious
editor? She refused to continue with the novel because of the nature of the
story, sexual abduction and abuse.
January of 2010, I got Basement back.
January 2012; I broke down, spent the money and hired an editor. Hopefully all the little things that annoyed some people are fixed. Enjoy!
Someone was hunting a female. Mean, hardened eyes. She left work on time, routine. Susie Smallwood was the target.
Then something hit her teeth. Then again.
She was helpless. Bound with gray duct tape across her mouth.
