I'm a full time novelist. I used to do other things including: newspaper reporter, editor, visual artist, analyst, and city manager. I didn't enjoy any of those as much as being a fiction writer.
I live in Missouri with my wife Ronda who provided photographs for some of my book covers. We both graduated from Fontbonne University in St. Louis where I earned MBA, MFA and MA degrees. My favorite thing to do is write.
I have published eight novels, six of which are in the Millie Mystery Thriller series. The published eBook titles in the Millie series (in chronological order) are: The Happenstance Marshal, The Deliberate Sheriff, The Persistent Sheriff, The Windfall Sheriff, The Mogul Sheriff and The Mentor Sheriff. The seventh book "The Caring Sheriff" will be released in 2013.
I have also written a thriller titled "Crossing Cassandra" and a historical action adventure "Sword, Cross and Crown."
I presently have three other novels finished and awaiting publication.
It is planned to start releasing all of my finished books in soft cover.
