The author dreamed of writing during his teenage and college years, but his plans were put on hold in 1965 when he entered the Army.
While serving in the Army, his writing skills were honed in country after country, assignment after fascinating assignment, e.g., language analyst, basic training drill sergeant, small unit tactics (Cavalry) instructor, Pershing operations sergeant, to name a few. He served as a Vietnamese, Cambodian, and German linguist with tours in Vietnam, Thailand, and Germany. Over twenty years later, he retired from the military and continued to write full time for industry and the private sector.
The author served as a volunteer chaplain and teacher in prison ministry while living in Indiana.
He has returned to the passion of his youth to write the thoughts of his heart in excellent poetry and fiction.
