About the Author

I loved writing as a kid but didn't understand I could take the passion and actually turn it into a novel until much later in life. After watching others around me disregard their talents and passions, I decided, while watching Ancient Aliens on the History channel, to see what I could do. Determined to write a novel, I sat down and started pressing keys on the laptop. With no outline, only a pantser attitude, the characters, and the story came to life as I wrote. I intertwine my love of Native American culture and passion for the Pacific Northwest, primarily my birth state of Oregon, in the paranormal mystery. With lackluster sales, but excellent reviews I went back to the drawing board after talking with a publicist who all but begged me to change the names of the novels, tweak the storyline, and have new covers designed. Lightning struck while struggling to come up with a name. Where the Wild Things Are was already taken, (wink wink), so I researched and found an actual incident that took place on the Rogue River, where the novels are set. Problem solved. I wrote a new prologue, commissioned Dan Van Ross to design awesome new covers, worked on further edits, the storyline, and made the novels tighter strategically launching my revamped creations. I enjoy every writing session because I get to be the first reader of something never before read by human eyes. It was exciting to see what unfolded every time I sat in front of the computer. I challenged myself by taking ideas I have had over the years watching Ancient Aliens and X-Files, as well as my love of Native American culture and my experience with countless hours spent in the outdoors of the Pacific Northwest. Bringing the ideas together in a novel and tying it together with actual events in 1949, was more fun than I ever imagined. I am excited to re-release these novels. They are fun to read and will provide you with several hours of enjoyment. I heard novelist Garth Stein, say at a writing convention to write something "you would like to read", so this is what I have done. Not everyone will like them and I understand, but if I can bring a few hours of enjoyment to a few people then I am satisfied. No matter what happens I will keep writing, if nothing else than, to entertain myself. Studying photography as a freshman in high school, I later took the passion and skills and used them as a photographer in the United States Air Force. After four years in the Air Force, I spent the next couple of decades living around the U.S. and raising my son Alexander. My love of cycling on the road or heart-pulsing trail-riding in the Oregon woods called for years before I finally returned in 2017. I like to think I have a penchant for capturing the outdoors, via photos, on my smartphone, which I usually share on Social Media. Often, I break out my high-end Canon DSLR and "gets serious" with my photography. Living back in Oregon, I have become enamored with Standup Paddleboarding and look forward to Friday afternoons, and the weekends, where I can bike, get on one of my favorite lakes and visit one of Southern Oregon's 151 wineries, often doing all three in the same day. When winter rolls around you will probably find me on Mt. Ashland skiing, thinking about a new novel on the chairlift and trying to stay on my skis, not my ass, on the slopes. In the hands of editors is my third novel, Hidden Beneath the Pines: All Families Have Secrets: a dark, whodunit mystery dealing with unexpected deaths and the chaos that ensues around murder, abduction, childhood abuse, and a family that wants to wish it all away. This novel, like the first two, takes place in and around Southern Oregon. I will continue to focus on Southern Oregon as the backdrop, or main character for my novels. I am working on my fourth novel now with the goal of an early 2019 release.
