Being a historian and museologist since the late sixties, he became specialized in warship and Marine Corps history and development, helping to organize, display and preserve naval history for about four decades, but parallel studies and interests led him to archaeological research of great civilizations of different eras. He did part time writing for more than thirty years and his books cover a wide range of subjects from historical to science fiction, ghost and detective stories and many other genres. The decision to write The Giza Trilogy demanded a great amount of research and time and he finally retired from his work in the shipping industry and the museum to dedicate to write full time.
He revised and republished his series of Collected Stories, wrote and published his first trilogy, and a series called Cooking with the Pharaohs. He opened Kemetpharaonics Publishing House and he also decided to invest in the e-book market publishing all his books in e-book format.
The Sand God – A Novel of Ancient Egypt and The Time Traveller Sequel to The Time Machine by H. G. Wells both published in 2013 right after the trilogy.
Now he is revising the companion book of The Giza Trilogy – Eternal Egypt and closing the first book of the Ancient Americas Series – Bonampak
His interest in comic book art led him to launch the ozecomics magazine and site, and his love for art resulted in the launching of the @rtdimension magazine and site not for fun or as a hobby, but as a genuine activity that fulfils his necessity to learn and share knowledge.

Review on the Collected Other Stories
Setting Place: Different Parts of the Earth and other worlds
Setting Time: An extensive timeline
Story Format: Short Stories and Novellas
The book covers fictional events developed in the universe of different cultures, different beings inhabiting other worlds such as the one in The Oracle of Pentos 7. The intriguing thought of native cultures portrayed by the legends of the Pacific islands such as in Dolphin Joe and The Eye of the God can be mysterious and unexpected. One can also be a witness to the ruthless Spanish Conquest of the Aztecs, as well as the passion of the author for maritime stories such as in The Nelson Touch, The Sea Captain and others. It was fine to visit memories of Ancient Greece in Lydia's Song, and still thinking about the past in The Eye of Ra, some scary moments with Night Calls or the aboriginal Gulluph Man.
The adventure is open to the reader who dares to chase the fun in these pages. I must say I deeply enjoyed. It surpassed the expectations I had in opening the pages of the book, with some knowledge of the Author's way of penning his stories. The ideal size of the stories and the variety found is another aspect to enjoy and explore. The title does not do justice to this collection that is meant to entertain and scare the curious reader, as well as the searcher of new worlds in which to flirt with adventure.
