I am a retired US Government employee who recently finished a second career as a Defense contractor in the United Kingdom. I started writing fiction some 20 years ago but, with a full-time job and other obligations, I never gave my writing the time necessary to become truly successful. Now, I hope to devote full-time to being an author. I have written two novels and several short stories, a couple of which have appeared in online publications. The first novel, "The Ghosts of Hanoi," is available as an ebook at Smashwords.com, and several ebook distributors including Barnes & Noble, Diesel, Kobo, Sony, and Apple Ibooks. It is also available for the Kindle reader at www.amazon.com. I am currently working a third novel (hope springs eternal). I have been published extensively in government documents and publications, the majority of which, alas, cannot be viewed by the general public. My novels can be described as being halfway between Alan Drury and Tom Clancy. The short fiction tends toward horror and SF. Who knows where the muse takes us when we sit down and hit the keyboard?
I currently live in northern Rhode Island with my wife, Cathy, two step-children, and two cats.
