About this author

I've been privileged to write for a number of aviation and aerospace magazines, including Air & Space Smithsonian. PERIGEE is my first novel. The sequel, ECLIPTIC, will be available in early 2014.

A licensed pilot and airline dispatcher, I've worked all over the the aviation industry for the past twenty years.

I currently reside in central Ohio as an expatriate southerner with my Yankee wife and children. I enjoy hiking, music, astronomy, BBQ and coffee.

Mmm...coffee.


His name was Mike Alsbury, may the Lord rest his soul.Not yet forty years old, with a family, and no doubt with the future literally in his hands. I spent much of the weekend scouring the space blogs for this news, as I served in the Marineswith one of Virgin Galactic’s pilots and fearedit might […] Read more of this blog post »

The Liberty Amendments by Mark R. Levin
“It is folly to believe that Congress and the president, on their own, will make the necessary and difficult decisions to address the impending financial debacle. After all, they and their predecessors engineered the approaching tsunami. As the situation becomes direr, the federal government's actions will grow more oppressive.”
Mark R. Levin
The Liberty Amendments by Mark R. Levin
“Today Congress operates not as the Framers intended, but in the shadows, where it dreams up its most notorious and oppressive laws, coming into the light only to trumpet the genius and earnestness of its goings-on and to enable members to cast their votes. The people are left lamebrained and dumbfounded about their "representatives'" supposed good deeds, which usually take the form of omnibus bills numbering in hundreds if not thousands of pages, and utterly clueless about the effects these laws have on their lives. Of course, that is the point. The public is not to be informed but indoctrinated, manipulated and misled.”

“Travis considered the larger one below it. A file drawer. Was it even worth bothering with? What could have been in it but paper? What could be in it now but an inch-deep layer of mold dust?

He opened it.

It contained an inch-deep layer of mold dust.”
Patrick Lee, Ghost Country

Mark R. Levin
“It requires emphasis that the states established the American Republic and, through the Constitution, retained for themselves significant authority to ensure the republic's durability. This is not to say that the states are perfect governing institutions. Many are no more respectful of unalienable rights than is the federal government. But the issue is how best to preserve the civil society in a world of imperfect people and institutions. The answer, the Framers concluded, is to diversify authority with a combination of governing checks, balances, and divisions, intended to prevent the concentration of unbridled power in the hands of a relative few imperfect people.”
