"There are more things in heaven and on earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." - Shakespeare

Background Information

I'm an indie author and book cover designer.  I've been intrigued by all things "strange" and "unexplained" for most of my adult life. Yes, I have seen a UFO (huge black triangle, see my article here on A.D.) and my affidavit attesting to the event became part of a court case brought against the U.S. Dept. of Defense back in the 1990s. Oh, there's much more strangeness to tell but you wouldn't believe it so I won't go into it.

CLICK THE COVERS of my books in the right-hand column on this page for all the info about each of the tales I've authored. -------->

My debut novel, The Ezekiel Code (Outskirts Press and Kindle, 2007) became an "BestSeller" in 3 categories for over 57 weeks.

My second novel, ASH: Return Of The Beast, is a modern-day supernatural crime chiller steeped in occult lore. The story was inspired by the real life (or should I say, real death) mystery concerning the unexplained 1947 disappearance of the urn containing the ashes of history's most notorious occultist, Aleister Crowley (a.k.a, "The Beast"). It's available on Kindle and in paperback on • CLICK THE COVER (far right side of this page) for detailed info, a short excerpt and the video trailer. -------->

My collection of novella-length shorts (inspired by the likes of Rod Serling's Twilight Zone and Night Gallery) is called WANNA TAKE A RIDE? It contains 4 stories from my series of Twisted Tales From The Files Of The Second Chance Limousine Service.  It's available on Kindle for $2.99 • CLICK THE COVER (far right side of this page) for detailed descriptions of each Twisted Tale and an excerpt from one of the stories. ------->

I live in the Pacific N.W. in a cozy condo with my black cat, Bear. He's a smart (ass) cat and claims to be the actual author of all my books but it's not true. Occasionally, however, he does come up with some pretty good ideas. If he ever figures out how to type I just might have some serious competition.




Some of my artwork (alien-human hybrid pin-up girls) appeared on the TV show, Strange Universe.

I've written several feature articles for FATE Magazine. One of those articles (the story of the Majestic-12 Documents) sparked enough interest that I was asked to be a guest on a number of radio stations to talk about the article.

My story, A BITE OUT OF TIME, won the 2010 Books-In-Sync short story contest.

My debut novel, The Ezekiel Code, was chosen as a 2008 EVVY award nominee and became a "BestSeller" on for over 57 weeks.

But my greatest accomplishment was contributing to the creation of my son, Gabriel, who has become a young man with a heart of gold and a sense of humor that keeps everyone in stitches. Gabe, you crazy dude, you!
