Publicist and author of "The Solie Chronicles:The Life and Times of Gordon Solie."


Background Information

I starting writing as a teenager when I was the sports editor for my high school newspaper. A few years later, I married Pam Sjoblom, daughter of the legendary broadcaster, the late Gordon Solie. 

Gordon was an incredible man who won awards for his radio editorials, he was one of the pioneers in stock car racing on the Florida Suncoast and later became known as the "Dean" of professional wrestling.

His TV numbers were staggering with an estimated 5,000,000 viewers tuning in to watch him on a regional program in 1976 (Championship Wrestling from Florida).

By the early 1980's, Gordon had 10,000,000 combined viewers tune in every week to Georgia Championship Wrestling and The Best of Georgia Championship Wrestling in addition to the fans still watching the Florida show.

His accomplishments in syndicated television were amazing and he was to say the least, an interesting subject for a biography.

My wife, Pam, co-authored the book with me along with the accomplished wrestling historian, Scott Teal.

Together we produced a manuscript that spans Gordon Solie's life from his birth until his passing in July of 2000.

Overall, the completion of the manuscript took over seven years and thousands of man hours.

Birth Place
Toledo, OH United States
Additional Information

In addition to appearances on Fox TV and ABC TV, I have been interviewed over fifty times for radio, print or online magazines.
