Harvey,who has always believed that books are magic, can't imagine a day without reading. "Where was the internet when I needed it?"

Background Information

When I was six years old I was allowed to have my own library card. I proudly signed up and checked out Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leadues Under the Sea. My passion for words began early.

I was raised in the Canton section of Baltimore Maryland, and reside in Virginia, with my wife Susan. I graduated from California State College, now California University of Pennsylvania. I began teaching biology and earned a master's at Towson University. After I retired from Anne Arundel Public Schools, I began writing in order to answer the, 'What are you doing now?' question.

My influences vary, changing rapidly. My wife has been a constant in the changes. I still read or re-read, The Immense Journey by Loren Eisley, anything by Ray Bradbury, Any scrap of paper with information about the science of lie, Killer Angels, Fighting the Flying Circus and old copies of Walt Kelley's Pogo. I believe that Mad Comics helped fire my appetite for learning.

Much to my surprise I enjoyed playing with words...and I still do. Every day I find a new perspective and hope to do so until my end.    

Birth Place
Uniontown, PA USA

Biology teacher and school administrator for 31 years. I graduated from California and Towson Universities with a BS and M ed. President of the Hanover Chapter of The Virginia Writers Club.

Additional Information

I have written several novels, Little Sister of War formerly published by is now on Kindle Books or in paperback on Another book, Moonlight on the River, is currently published by Create Space and available on Amazon. I also published, As The Wind Walks, with Asyslett Press. When Asylett exited from the small press world I put it on Kindle Books and Amazon. Death Takes a Number, is being published by Champagne Books until January 31, 2013. ( After that I'll regain my rights and make it avaiable through Create Space. I intend to write three more novels, all in different genres. I believe that everything I write must be accurate and educational. My intent is to make you misty-eyed and chuckle before you put one of my books down.

As The Wind Walks
As The Wind Walks, is a novel that combines two eras, the 1860's and 1940's. This story of a common soldier is told by a ninety year old veteran of the Civil Wat, to his great-grandson on the eve of World War II. This is a coming of age story, with each boy facing his country's most trying time. The legacy of the Civil War vet is a promise he hopes to communicate to the boy in 1940. The vagaries of war stand between them. In a crucible of conflict, each boy is transformed. Family, romance, and the girls left behind, can only hope and pray for a safe return.

Death Takes a Number
A body surrounded by blood and scattered roses confronts a young homicide detective weary of his job, and from seeing seven years of carnage. Cain Machinovic, a man of grinding resolve, is on the brink of self-destruction. Somehow he is touched and re-born by the sight of a particular body. He vows to bring closure to the beautiful lifeless spirit of sixty-five year old Kendra Holland. In the wintry streets of Duquesne Heights, and with a newly rekindled light in the dark recesses of Cainís sober soul, he begins his quest. Life is never conveniently uncomplicated. The effort to solve this crime will tear apart his relationship with two women, and lead him into a morass of murder spanning nearly six decades. While two people remain hopeful that Cain will emerge from the darkness, someone else is waiting, a killer who is counting down the final days of the last two intended victims. This tortured soul has a definite number in mind. Waiting for the killer, Cain Machinovic is a man on fire with determination.

Little Sisters of War
The Shenandoah Valley in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains provides the setting for Little Sisters of War, a story of women athletes and the game of lacrosse. The Native American connection and the spirituality of the Creators game starts with Kate Holland preparing to return to her alma mater, tiny Spotswood College, ten years later. Her journey takes us back to the years when she was young, when much of her character was formed, especially during one particular year; a season of controversy, conflict, and triumph. Fiction/ Women's issues, lacrosse, college athletics, Shenandoah Valley, coming of age, Native American lore, inspirational.
