After high school, I spent four years in the Air Force as a Medic. Following my discharge, I attended Wright State University, where I earned a Master of Science degree in geology. I then entered the oil industry in Houston, Texas, as a Petroleum Geologist. My career in the oil industry ended during a period of unusually low oil prices. I took that as a sign from above to try something new. So, I did something that I had been doing as a hobby for years - writing. I scratched that particular itch and, I took up writing. With my novels, short stories, a book discussing my ideas on gravity and a book on managing diabetes, this life switch has taken hold.
My various career venues have played a large part in writing both my fiction and my non-fiction. There isn't one scene, event or character in my books that is not impacted by events in my life. The cliche about write about what you know, works. I think my scenes and characters are real because in a way, I have experienced all of them before putting them to paper.
Linda, my wife, and I settled in a beautiful, and slightly isolated spot in Vancouver, Washington. With two and a half acres, we found our bit of heaven in the Great Northwest. It's been an interesting life path - raised in Ohio, a couple of times on the Gulf Coast, then the plains of Oklahoma and finally Washington. This is the home we always wanted, mild weather, near the mountains and the ocean and enough land to let the dog run all she wants. This is the home we always wanted. The weather is mild. We are near both the mountains and the ocean and we have enough land to let the dog run all she wants. What else is there in life? We're happy.
Oh, concerning my life path, there was that one little detour that was very interesting, and only a bit anxiety raising. My time in Africa. I did a stint working as a geologist in Angola, Africa. Trust me, there is nothing like being in a communist country during a revolution to make you appreciate home.
That's me and that's my life in a nutshell.
