As a career computer network administrator, I began writing novels in 2000 as an artistic release from the unforgiving logic of bits and bytes.

Being a resident of rural Pennsylvania, I'm inspired by my bucolic surroundings. My commercially published novels center on rural lifestyle issues and include mountain lions, rustic old inns, Native American culture, and buried treasure!

I'm a big fan of speculative fiction and wrote the popular, post-apocalyptic saga, Earthburst. You can check out my commercial fiction by clicking on the website link below.

For Wattpad, I've written the young-adult adventure, The Story of Sing, which was awarded shortlist status during the 2018 Watty Awards.

I enjoy reading any genre so long as the story is well-written and holds my interest.

Memberships include: Pennwriters, Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group, and Perry County Council of the Arts. I am also a speaker and panelist at writers conferences.
