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 was released March 26, 2013, and Book Five, Heirs Of Wisdom (originally titled Loss of Wisdom until the characters hi...more


In the boxes of my folks' books, I found one of the books I'll be taking along on our computers-forbidden camping vacation in July. It's The Ides of March by Thornton Wilder. I found the invoice pasted inside the cover of this hard cover copy which was the March, 1948 Book-of-the-Month Club selection.

Price? $2.90 including mailing expense!

Boy, oh boy, the dollar sure ain't what it used to be!!! Read more of this blog post »

I truly did enjoy this story which kept me well engaged with suspense and curiosity about the protagonist's motivation. The biggest stumbling block for me — the one that kept me from giving this novel a 4-star rating — was the apparently intelligent...more

The story was okay and reasonably well told, but I really wasn't able to become attached to any of the characters, which is a necessity for my enjoyment of any story of this kind.

Since I knew that Kennedy's Berlin speech ended up being a triumph, it...more

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 »

“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.”
