Now retired, I had a lifelong career in telecommunications. I have a love of the written word and have always admired those who can skillfully express feelings and events in writing. My novel 'Forever Young The Beginning' is my first attempt at fiction. I also wrote a book about Bible Codes in 1998 which is titled 'Secrets of the Bible'.
I live in the Southeastern United States in the countryside with my wife Kathy. For some ten years, I had a deep love affair with flying. Hopelessly hooked after my very first flight on a hang glider, I began a journey of flying gliders and ultralights, even becoming a dealer for three different brands and an observer for the southeastern region of the then U S H G Assn. To this day, I have to say that I loved that more than any past time, hobby, or sport in which I ever participated. Next to being a husband and father, it was the high point of my life.
I love to write and I thoroughly enjoy creating characters and developing them to where my readers can get a feel for not only how they look, but how they tick. Developing a plot and filling it with shocks, surprises, humorous events, and tenderness is what I strive for; and I love to fill my stories with the full range of human emotions from true love to extreme hatred, from warm companionship to extreme rage, and from laughter to tears. Surprises and the full range of human emotions should be liberally sprinkled throughout the length of a good story in my view. My goal is to transport the reader to a place where he cannot otherwise go simply by the power of my words. I hope to refine the skills that I have long admired before I ever turned my hand toward becoming an author.
