With over three decades of writing experience, Derek stays busy on many projects. Over the years, he’s published both fiction and non-fiction in national and international publications. One project involved writing a mystery story and designing an accompanying puzzle with clues and red herrings for a publisher in England. Three of his novels, MAYAN MOON, TWICE IN A BLUE MOON, and MOON RIDGE are now available from James Kay Publishing.
Major influences include Alistair MacLean, Clive Cussler, Rex Stout, Ellery Queen, the Twilight Zone, and the Doc Savage pulp series by Kenneth Robeson.
