Educated in the Engineering School at The University of Washington, then side trips to the Army's Ranger and Airborne Schools... then a bit of time (1967&68) in Vietnam's war as a grunt with the storied 173rd Airborne Brigade, I found sanctuary in construction and writing.
My life has been influenced by "The Major" who landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day. My father was one of Field Marshal Montgomery's personal liaison officers.
My writing of Digger Dogface Brownjob Grunt was influenced by the brothers Wallace and Charles Kuralt.
Digger Dogface... has won three national awards with USA Book News and ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards... and Digger... won the Grand Prize in The International Book Awards for Best Fiction Book of 2010...
