Hello and thanks for coming to my page. I grew up in the 1960's. A time when actual space flight was relatively new and had captured the publics' imagination. As s teenaged boy I was a rapt reader of what became scifi classics. " Citizen of the Galaxy" by Heinlein, the "Lensman" series by Doc Smith, Asimovs' "I Robot" novels all kept me from doing my homework and relentlessly turning pages long after lights out. You don't find this sort of fare anymore, so I aim to produce it.

I also have a (distant) background as an illustrator. In my pulp-styled works I will be including several illustrations of the text per episode. Fairly simple line drawings that should replicate decently on a Kindle.

I will also be introducing a fairly gritty mystery/horror series featuring a continuing character- Father Ted. An ex-Delta, traveling preacher with a haunted past who assists those in need who come to his revivals, and punishes evil doers with dismemberment. Father Ted walks a fine line that sometimes gets blurry.

I do have a full time job as a traveling engineering trainer for a large company. For the next few years this will limit my output somewhat.

So please, if you like Jack of all Trades, check back from time-to-time to what else I have available. There will be more of Jack and Angelina as they uncover the mysteries of Faralane. Look for the 4 remaining installments of this five-part series.

And please be sure to write a review! There is no bad publicity!
