Meet the Author

Well, they tell me I need to say a bit about myself, here, so here goes!I was born in St. Louis in 1955, and grew up in a small town in Southern Illinois. There, the same imagination that makes me a talented writer today often got me into trouble. Thankfully, I survived, and some of my early adventures have helped to shape my life and, and now my work.Over the years, I've held a number of jobs; I've been in law enforcement, sales, advertising, and auto repair, and served as a banker, reporter, radio talk show host, music producer, song writer, theatrical, movie and video producer, truck driver, taxi driver...well, you get the picture, right?And then, a few years ago, I ran afoul of the IRS, and found myself serving a five year sentence in Federal Prison for a tax offense. I'd written a number of short stories, poems and other things over the years, but I'd never felt I had time to write a novel. Well, all of a sudden, I had lots of time, so one day I sat down and started writing! And guess what? I found out what I should have been doing all along. I think that's the real secret to happiness... find out what you love to do, and do it, even if it takes you your whole life!From Prison to Publishing!I'm looking forward to the release of my first few novels in the next couple of months, and I've already got several more planned and in progress! The way I see it, I'm only 58 years old. So, okay, I'm getting into the game a little late, but I've got enough years left to get a lot of writing done, and the way I'm going I might catch up to some of the big guys!But writing isn't all I'm about. My experiences in the entertainment industry have left him with a love for movies, so I plan to produce Independent movies of his books for Internet broadcast. I've already partnered up with a screenwriter who is hard at work on adaptations of The Very Swift Witches and Promise of Magic even now!Watch this spot for details. And if you've ever dreamed of being in movies...well, there's a lot of undiscovered talent out there, so I'll be looking for new faces to cast as these characters I love so much.You never know. Could be your big break, eh?
