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 Eating with the Pharaohs – Ancient Egyptian Cookbook - Part I
Setting Place: Ancient Egypt
Setting Time: IV Dynasty
Story Format: Recipes and Comments
This book was a surprise and a pleasant discovery. When I enjoy an author’s style I tend to check and buy most of the books produced by the writer. When checking the author’s page for more by this author, I found a cookbook of Ancient Egypt with the comments of Pentu the Scribe, the fictional character responsible for the kitchen in the Pharaoh’s household.
The recipes, just give us a clue of how things could have been developed in such ancient times, the possible ingredients used in the ancient kitchen which come with the instruction of how to prepare the food for the Pharaoh and the ones in his family. The interesting and very clever idea is the selection of comments on the preferences and habits of the Pharaoh and all those who shared his meals, the way it was served and the meaning some dishes had to this mysterious and powerful character. Just like any series it is just the first book and I expect a lot more from the following books.
