I prefer a big ol' greasy hamburger to a caviar dish, and my taste in books growing up was very similar. I read tons of non-fiction (mostly history), and fiction in most genres. I didn't read most of the classics and am still fairly lacking in that regard.

BTW, Goodreads is NOT idiot-proof. I'm still trying to figure it all out.

Anyhoo, so far everything I've published is adventure of one flavor or another.

If you want me to let you know in advance when my next book is coming out, click here!

I stopped being a sucker for bread and circuses a few years ago. My irritation with the NFL had been growing for years before that.


Free agency destroyed team loyalty among players and coaches, and even team coherency in most cases. Officiating has been inconsistent at best, and smacks of fixing at its worst. And bad calls have affected the outcome of big games in recent history. But the last st...

Wilbur Smith
“They do say that socialism is the ideal philosophy-just as long as you have capitalists to pay for it.”
Wilbur Smith, The Leopard Hunts in Darkness

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”
Samuel Adams

C.S. Lewis
“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
