Born in Los Angeles in the middle of the last century, I have always wanted to be a writer. After twenty-five some odd years spent working in the computer industry in the heart of the Silicon Valley, first for Lockheed as a Systems Programmer and later for Cisco Systems as a test tool developer, I managed to retire early and begin my next career as a self-published author.
Along with writing and publishing my own novels I also publish the works of my wife, Melanie Jackson. During the past four years I've published well over 100 books in paperback and ebook formats. Oddly enough this includes ebooks on how to self-publish books and how to create professional looking book covers using the GIMP. I've also recorded and distributed a pair of audiobooks available for purchase on Amazon and Audible. Finally, I spend a portion of my time maintaining both my website and my wife’s website, which was developed modularly using Bootstrap 3 and SSI technologies.
My latest endeavor, begun in July of 2014, is to record training courses for distribution via Udemy. My goal is to provide low cost high quality screen cast based educational material focusing on my area of expertise; namely, self-publishing and book cover design using the GIMP. As time permits, I plan to expand my catalog to cover Web page development and Udemy course preparation.
I currently live in the beautiful California wine country with my beautiful wife, published author Melanie Jackson, and Butterscotch the cat.

This book reads like a Quentin Tarantino movie. Fast moving, extremely gory and very imaginative, with a cast of fictional and real characters from WW11. The idea is original and the author paints a vivid picture of the ultimate horror of a vampire master race. I was hooked from the first chapter and couldn't stop reading until I had reached the end.
Unfortunately, I do have one criticism. I can't believe that an author who has taken such obvious care over his research and worked so hard to write a truly original horror story could allow his work to be published with so many spelling mistakes. Sorry, but that's the only reason I can't give five stars to what is otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable read.
