I was born in Charlottesville Va. and have been an avid reader since childhood. I am the middle child of three brothers. When my 5th grade class went to the public library for the first time, I was the only one with a library card already in possession and a mountain of books already read. Book reports were never a problem.

To this day my wife's one legitimate complaint about me is if I am reading, or even worse writing, the house could be on fire and I wouldn’t notice. Visitors to our home always ask the same question of "Have you ever disposed of a book?" and the answer to that is no!

Electronics and communications has been my passion since high school, earning a BS in Telecommunications. After years working for various equipment manufactures the job and fate landed me in Dallas Texas area. After may other jobs (Ok so I wasn’t an engineer, I was a migrant worker subject to the whims of current government projects.) I found a home at a little upstart telephone company called MCI. After twenty-two years there I got caught in the big lay off and deception. Most of my writing up to that point was technical papers for business and magazine articles, but I did get to work with a very good editor who put a bit of polish to my writing (Thank you Andy!). I currently work for the state of Texas as a radio technician taking care of state police communications.

I did feel I was overripe for a novel awhile back and this was the result. I hope you enjoy it and yes I am working on a second novel.
