About this author

I am a native Californian currently living in Southern California with my wife of more than forty-five years. I retired in 2008 from a 39 year career in the printing industry which included production, sales and management. During that time I wrote magazine articles and advertising copy but had never attempted a novel length work.

I began writing my first novel, Wizard of Wisdom, at the age of sixty-three. I wrote Books Two and Three (Princess of Wisdom and Children of Wisdom) while searching for a publisher for Book One.
Double Dragon e-books accepted the entire series for publication in late 2010.

Book Four, Kingdom of Wisdom, which continues the history of the Wisdom Chronicles, was released March 26, 2013.

As for the future, Book Five, Heir...more

The Prince and the Pilgrim by Mary Stewart

Rather a light weight story after the initial four books in the Merlin series, but it definitely belongs in the series. Definitely would recommend reading the others before this one because of the occasional references to events in them, although she...more

Wild by Cheryl Strayed
" I'm of the wrong culture for this book. Its origins are liberal, white, lapsed-Christian American, coming of age in the 1980s. I shouldn't have picked this book up, but a lot of people I respect liked it a great deal. I'm older than the demographi... " Read more of this review »
Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind

Wow, some of the reviews of this book have been pretty brutal. Seems that at least some of the reviewers' opinions of the book are colored in part by their negative reactions to Goodkind as a person. Since I knew nothing about the author when I read...more

Terry Brooks was one of the three major influences in my own writing. First, of course, was the old man himself, JRR Tolkien. Next was Mary Stewart's Merlin series. Finally, even though I was bothered by the fact it was obviously a LoTR knock-off, it...more

“The death of this honorable man upon this battlefield leaves all of us the poorer for his loss, yet so much the richer for the friendship and love and loyalty with which he gifted us in life. May his spirit speed unhindered to the other side to join those already there and to await us until we join him in our own times.”
