It seems I have been around books in one way or another for most of my life. I am a third generation bookstore owner, with my grandfather and then father running the Lucas bookstore in Berkely, Ca for over 40 years. I now own and run a bookstore with my wife in Northern California. I am also a third generation writer, with my grandmother and mother both being published, however I am the first to get a novel to this level.
My current book has been influenced by some of my favorite authors. These include: Cluve Cussler, Jack DuBrul, and James Rollins. I enjoy a good adventure and that is what I have written.
The second book, currently being edited, has a completely different set of influences. Christian novelist Frank Peretti and fantasy writer Terry Brooks have crossed paths in this story.
Book three is back to the word of adventure.
