A bio about me, not an easy thing to do, especially for me. I have been all over the place.
Born in Rhode Island. I grew up living on the upper Narraganset Bay in a very poor family. I now live in Florida.
I have several college degrees, served in the United States Air Force and I was an Engineer for over thirty five years. More importantly for the readers of my books, I read everything I can get my hands on in science and science fiction.
I have traveled most of the United States and quite a bit of Europe.
Growing up in a poorer family there were no easy rides. It put an enormous amount of practical experience at my hands, which helped in my career choice of Engineering for thirty five years. It shows in my approach to my stories. Always based in reality and then stretch it. Since my retirement in sunny Florida, I have discovered I love writing books. Who knew? I knew I always had an imagination. So may times I got into trouble for daydreaming.
So what this means to you, the reader, is that my stories are based in scientific and or engineering reality. No beaming down, no magic twinkling fanged people. That doesn't mean that there isn't amazing concepts. Just think of all the amazing technology we have now, and if you have an imagination, you can daydream some incredible stories.
My favorite authors are Author C. Clark and Steven King. To me, Steven King is the best at making us believe in the characters. As my son will say, “King not only can describe the cupboards but he can read to you the label of everything in the cupboard.” I would say, “All good stories are about the people first, last and always. It is the people who are the important parts of the stories. Without people a book is just a technical manual. Luckily for me, people are like snow flakes, no two are the same.”
That exact point is taken to extremes in my book “Jumpin J Hose is Fast.” Other books I have written:

Each book tells a different type of story and each is unique.
