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.

Summary of the story
This is the life story of Pharaoh Khufu which includes his life as a child in the royal city of Ineb- hedj during the reign of Pharaoh Snefru, (builder of the Bent and Red Pyramids in Dahshur). It explores the years of learning, his ascension to the throne, his main project (the construction of the Great Pyramid – the most amazing human feat, if we consider the time and the technological development of that era), the wars Pharaoh Khufu fought, his love and family life, and the life in the society of the time, highlighted by the most significant characters in the Pharaoh’s story in the 86 chapters of the book.
The story takes place in Ancient Egypt, in the Age of Pyramid Builders, most precisely the IV Dynasty. For the layman it brings facts and theories worked by great archaeologists, laboriously matched and linked, to compose the narrative of this great epic saga. The fictional aspect beautifully encourages the reader to imagine how the characters were born lived/worked/fought/created/shared/dressed ate/related with each other/grew old and died. The book is a real work of research and composition that will impress even the scholars and Egyptologists who will find in its pages their theories inserted and expanded in each and every chapter of the story.
