Meet the Author

Although I'm a retired community college instructor, I lived another life and acquired a wide range of experiences before my teaching and now author gig. I served the U.S. Navy and my country in Vietnam. I repaired robots and automated equipment in the aerospace industry. I was publicity chairman of the California Belly Dance Association for a while, actor in a motion picture, Manufacturing Engineer and Regional Chairman of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and finally Professor of Manufacturing Technology at a local community college. Name it, and I've likely done it.


However, despite threatening to do so for many years, I'd never written a book. At least, until now. It's a lot of work. You really, really have to love it. Fortunately, (or unfortunately) it do love it and plan to continue it as long as I can type, scribble or speak.


Stay tuned for more. (See my website,Facebook and my blog for new books.)

    Great book and concept

    This is the fourth book ive read by this writer and again another great read. This book really makes you think. Theres a lot of technology in the world and just because you havent heared of doesnt mean its not there or being made. Anything can happen and this book tells a good story of what way it can.

    Great read

    I thought the 'world' after the plague was believable especially when machines took over.. the sex was a bit explicit, but It would be intense after a long time of 'virtual' sex & no physical contact allowed.. Great short story not intended for young readers!
