I'm a ninth-generation Maryland native who knows and loves history. I attended the College of William and Mary in Virginia where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics in 1964. After college, I enjoyed a thirty-three year career at the Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, Maryland. In my Navy career, I achieved recognition for innovative work that was widely published. My collaboration with Naval test pilots and engineers spanned virtually every facet of the aircraft flight test work at the Patuxent Navy base. I served as the Executive Director of the Naval Air Station during my last three years with the Navy.

Along the way, I studied local history and published numerous articles in magazines and in the Chronicles of St. Mary’s, a publication of the St. Mary’s County Historical Society. My first book-length work was the popular A Most Convenient Place, Leonardtown, Maryland 1650-1950, which has gone into the second printing.

My first novel, A Matter of Space, reflects my strong affection for the important work done by the Navy at Patuxent River Naval Air Station and the equally important work of the archaeologists, historians, interpreters and staff at Historic St. Mary’s City.

My wife Ann and I live in Williamsburg, Virginia. I'm currently working on a series of children’s stories and a third novel.

I picked this book at the authors book signing. He is a very well informed man and this book shows it. From the local places he describes (i have been at some of them) to the history of the area, and most important an excilarating story line. It will keep you up reading at night. Thanks for such a wonderful read.

This story held me from the first page. The play of ancient against the modern backdrop is innovative and gives the story an unexpected dimension. When the mystery began, I held on tight, turning pages. Don't read this on a dark and stormy night unless your heart is strong!
