Meet the Author

The growth on my bog has surprised me. Thank you to all my readers. Each week I post a new article on Sunday. As is smashwords, I am constantly trying to improve the site so it is easier for you to use. If you have a comment, please write me. Again, thank You!


My first book "Titanic, A Search For Answers" was originally written as a fundraiser for a maritime museum where I was the advisory board president and a member of the board of trustees.


Historical research is my hobby and influences much of my writing.


I'll add more in the future.


I have about another 6 e-books that I need to finish editing and they will be up. Sorry for the delay. I have a bit of a full plate right now, but I will get them up soon. Also, based on feedback from readers, I wrote an outline for a new book on Titanic (but this will be my last Titanic book).


A submarine sailor for almost nine years, I am also an award winning artist. As a scuba diver I have dived sites from New England to the Caribbean.


Once again, thank you very much.


Take care and God bless you.


Drop me a line ... I am glad to answer any questions you might have.

    love

    Love is something most only say about family. But, to open your heart to help others in hard times is a value of love that can't be measured. I loved this book. I wish more people had thought withh their heart instead of their wallets.

    Short but filled.

    Short, but I liked it. It was very thoughtful and lovely. Honestly, I would be interested in reading a full length book of this.

    Great story

    I only wish it were a full book. Reading about the chances others are willing to take to help his fellow man is always touching. This is very short but I highly recomend it. I will be looking for this authors other works to find out what else is a family thing.

    A good insight as to the "days of ol'"... stories from our grandparents. It made me remember some of the stories I was told while growing up; some were not as impressive, but good memories just the same.

    It was also a bit of a history lesson on slavery and what happened "back in the day". Makes you appreciate what freedom is all about.

    An easy read and I will probably re-read it again.

    Anyone that would give 1-3 stars because of the Length of a book

    Anyone that would give 1-3 stars because of the Length of a book is not being a true critic, nor helping others to decide whether or not to read it for themselves. Please, for the ones of us who check out star ratings under the books, please rate the writing ability of authors only. Thanks
