The ability to write a novel is a gift that should not be squandered by hasty scribbling, but should be edited mercilessly before publication.


Background Information

For me, writing fiction was a selfish indulgence after having written countless business memos and white papers. It allowed me to travel to imaginary places and enter the world of spies, politics, (quantum) physics, and travel. The Third Craft required extensive internet research. For instance, when I talk about the National Military Joint Intelligence Center as the most powerful spy center on the planet, this is true. When I talk about the name of its head as the mysterious "H", this is also true, corny, but true. The places, weapons, spy networks, people, physics, quantum theories etc. are not only true and verifiable, they are time sensitive to the setting of the novel. Several of the secret military locations no longer exist or are unavailable to public scrutiny. The Third Craft is aimed at a younger and/or sci.fi. audience with more of a focus on the adventure and science, than the development of plot and character.

My second novel is an adult horror. it is a ghost story with a dash of mystery thrown into a pot of simmering horror. The content is mature. The characters are not over developed, allowing for the reader to take some role ownership. The scenery is Canadian, while the main characters are American.

After graduating with honors in business from WLU in Waterloo, Ontario, I worked as a comptroller before striking out as an entrepreneur. Back then, 1970's, entrepreneurs were not well respected. Consequently, my circle of family, friends, and business associates saw me as merely unemployed. Over time that changed, but not before I shed that circle and began anew. Today, I am CEO of Magiseal Corporation (warranties) and President of Oxygon Technologies (green cleaning chemicals). For diversion, I am a pilot, play piano for sanity, drive my Argo amphibean vehicle around my property and play ball hockey (I'm Candian). But mostly I am happily married (16 years) with three teenaged children. I have one adult son who is a musician in Toronto who is married to a laywer.
