Biography

Traveling from the East Coast to the West Coast, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Yukon Territory and on to the great state of Alaska, I learned a great deal about people.
My books are written for and to all those people out there who taught me that our imagination is a great place to visit when relaxation is needed.
My books are now, and always will be written for anyone who can read for enjoyment. Nothing more and nothing less.
Growing up I became enthralled by the works of several authors such as, Raymond Chandler, Mickey Spillane, and Dashiell Hammett. Their characters talked out the scenarios in the murder victim’s room or a local bar rather than physically chase the culprits over rooftops. Yet, they always got ‘their man’.
I try to use their styles in my works, but with a science-fictional twist.
