I was born in Ahoskie, North Carolina in 1953. I served my country during the Vietnam War in the USMC. Later, my travels provided over thirty years of investigating and collecting stories of the paranormal. I am a "hybrid" author both traditionally and self-published. My genres include horror, thriller, mystery, suspense and romance with an element of paranormal in all of my novels. Edgar Allan Poe and Ray Bradbury are two of my favorite authors.
Writing has been my passion for more than 20yrs. My first book Ghosts of the North Carolina Shores a non-fiction was published by Schiffer Publishing Ltd. in Jan 2010. I have 3 novels that I have self-published since then.
They are: The Black Witch, Moonlight on the Nantahala, and Verliege
My newest release Appalachia Mountain Folklore is due out fall of 2012 by Schiffer Publishing Ltd. "Superstition, folklore, and the paranormal keep the spirits alive in the Appalachian region. Will you be the next one to visit with the ghosts of Cherohala?"
My works in progress include a screenplay for my novel The Black Witch and 3 additional paranormal thrillers. Their titles are Scratch, Chilkoot, and Jessie.
I founded and am lead investigator for The Smokey Mountain Ghost Trackers of Western North Carolina. I enjoy spending my free time with my wife and 6 boys. My interests include kayaking, white-water rafting, hiking and anything to do with the outdoors.We also have a boxer with a very sweet disposition named Dee Dee.
