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 Historical Stories
Setting Place: Different Parts of the world
Setting Time: Different points in time
Story Format: Short Stories or maybe
The book covers historical fictional events and the universe of different cultures such as the pre historic tribes in Montana/USA in The Mammoth Hunters, or the Viking intrigues in the Odin Saga, both stories complete books in the collection that is not only composed of short stories but contains real value for the reader, as one pays not for some pages but for complete books with lots of content. Loved the story of Richard, the King with its twists and a time line which allows a deeper understand of historical events that are too complex when reported in a strict time line. The historical fictional character of the work allows the imagination to reach beyond history itself.
The final and rich story, The Golden Man is a real treasure search, not only in the development of the story, but also in the way the reader may become involved in the many human emotions within the story. The nice storytelling is simple and clear, allowing the reader to follow his/her inner imagination in order to transport him/her to these places and be alone with the story and the characters, watching the events to unfold.
