About this author

What's a mid-40's divorced man to do after wrapping up twenty years in the US Navy? Why, start a career in teaching and writing, of course. Oh, and explore the world some more. And read everything possible. And spend time with my kids. And enjoy every moment to the fullest.

A teacher for the government by day, I ply my wares at night on my laptop, where I'm cranking out silly blog posts, socio-political commentary, poetry, short stories and novels at an excessive rate. If I was driving, I'd have been pulled over by now. Meanwhile, I have multiple novel projects in the works, all in various stages of development: some mostly done and some still in the idea stage, nothing more than a thought.

Outside of that, I'm a rampant philanthropist at the...more


The first revision/round of edits is done and now I'm sending it out to beta readers. I want to go back and tweak a few different things, but better to just let it ride for now. We'll see what they say, and hopefully it'll be a lot of good with a few good remarks thrown in to help me beef up some weak areas, fix some errors, etc. We'll see.

One thing I'm happy about going into book two is that I... Read more of this blog post »

Not a whole lot to say as this was a biography. One superb thing, however, was that so much of the book is based on Franklin's own letters, including a great deal of quotes from said letters, which give the book a tremendous amount of credibility. So...more

“I think being a liberal, in the true sense, is being nondoctrinaire, nondogmatic, non-committed to a cause - but examining each case on its merits. Being left of center is another thing; it's a political position. I think most newspapermen by definition have to be liberal; if they're not liberal, by my definition of it, then they can hardly be good newspapermen. If they're preordained dogmatists for a cause, then they can't be very good journalists; that is, if they carry it into their journalism."
