Just an old retired man who used to work in IT for the federal court system.  Always wanted to be a writer and my high school teacher convinced me to submit my first story way back then.  Imagine the torment and utter shame of a 17 yr old boy when he got his first reject.  The ember was still there but badly shaken.  Now, eons later, I am a published author with 2 of my own books and about 14 anthologies that I am in under my belt.  I am loving the thrill.  

I tend to blend genres in my stories so it is difficult to say it is this or that.  My "2012: Timeline Apocalypse" is a fantasy, paranormal, historical, detective, thriller, action type tale with a little romance and science thrown in to make it interesting.

When not writing you will find me out in the garden puttering around (summer) or reading fantasy books (seed catalogs) during the winter.  I also read real books, too, so I keep my finger on the pulse of science fiction, fantasy, horror, romance, adventure, thrillers, mystery, action and detective genres.

If I'm not gardening then hopefully I'm in my RV and out enjoying the backroads of America.  I love to travel and have been to almost every state.  I've been to Hawaii and Puerto Rico (a state and territory) but not made it to Alaska, yet.  

I am married, have four sons and right now I have eight grandkids to spoil.  With a little luck, hopefully, I'll see maybe one more grandchild and since my oldest grandson is out on his own, I may become a great-grandfather in the next year or two... who knows?

OK, the above wasn't all that exciting but I'm not that exciting -- my stories are.  Read them and let me know what you think.
