About the Author
I was born outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Now I live in New England with my Portuguese Water Dog (who happens to have the same grandfather as Bo Obama). Drake's Coffin and Ironsides' Peril are the first two novels in a planned series of several thrilling adventures featuring my Drake's Coffin hero, Zach Colt. For over a decade I lived and traveled throughout Central America. I have worked in federal law enforcement both in the States and overseas. Most recently I have been a trial lawyer in private practice. And yes, I did dive in search of Sir Francis Drake's lead coffin, which has been resting for over 400 years somewhere on the ocean floor near the entrance to Portobelo Harbor, Panama. I haven't found it -- yet.
