I have published five books to date and my sixth will be out in the summer of 2011. Three of these books are in a series about a young privateer sailor during the American Revolutionary War. The fourth comes out in 2011.

Background Information

I am a lifelong reader of maritime fiction and non-fiction. My writing has been influenced by C.S. Forester, Alexander Kent, Dudley Pope, Frederick Maryatt, Patrick O'Brian, and others. I was in the USN as an Aviation Electrician and a radio operator on a P2V Neptune. I have a degree in Industrial Design from University of Washington and retired from Boeing after thirty-five years as an engineer and manager. I am a member of Whidbey Island Writers Association. Living on Puget Sound, I enjoy cruising, crabbing, and fishing in my boat and I've been able to sail on the square-rigged ship Lady Washington several times as well as other sailing vessels.
