Hugh was a reporter for 30 years, nearly 20 of them with The Daily Press (Newport News, Va.)
and The Virginian-Pilot (Norfolk, Va.). He currently works at Newport News Shipbuilding in
communications. His interest in storytelling is longstanding and he is excited to see his first
novel out in the world.
His debut is “Fadeaway Joe,” a crime novel that features locations on the Virginia Peninsula,
including Fort Monroe and Phoebus. It follows the tale of a former Hampton Roads bouncer who
is out on a path of revenge.
Pursued by labor traffickers, Paula Jessup desperately needs someone in her corner. Her unlikely savior is an aging bouncer with early-onset dementia, grappling with his own ghosts. All they have to do is trust each other.
