There is no story more wonderful than that of our Natural History! Geology has given me both joy and material...


Background Information

I'm an enthusiast of Natural History, and I've acquired numerous college units and spent many summers on various expeditions searching for fossils and minerals. I have a work background that includes driving trucks, managing restaurants, and even several years in the United States Navy. Currently, I manage a business while I contunue my education in the field of Geology. I live near Fairbanks Alaska, where I am an avid outdoorsman and equestrian.

Although most shy away from politics, I find them fascinating and I've done some research in the workings of both small and large governments. I even have the battle scars from several attempts at public office (Lost all of them, but came close in a school board election once!) It's a dirty game, but somebody has to play it...I tried...I might try again. Then again, maybe not! It's an expensive hobby and a little more destructive than just going out and picking up rocks...

I have a style of writing that is more or less my own, and I try not to imitate anyone elses, but I do have to admit I have found much inspiration in the works of John Grisham, Tom Clancy, and especially, the non-fiction work of Jon Krakauer.

Birth Place
San Francisco, CA 
Accomplishments

I've climbed all of the 14,000 foot peaks in California, completed the Western States 100 mile horse race, and I have a collection of dozens of museum quality mineral and fossil specimens that I have excavated myself.
I have also won several awards for my poetry in some local competitions here in the Fairbanks area.
Recently, I just finished and published my first mystery, The Temblor of Diablo. I'm working on my next one, which will be new adventures with the same characters.

Additional Information

I have two books in print, 'Remember the Cretaceous Nights?' which is a science fiction adventure through the last sixty three million years, and 'The Temblor of Diablo,' a mystery thriller that incorporates my love and knowledge of geology.
