I am an award-winning public speaker and writer. My novel Amiga came from my experiences in the computer industry in the 1980s as a technical writer and computer journalist. My awards for writing and public speaking include Distinguished Toastmaster and an Award of Excellence from the International Online Communications Competition. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from California State University, Northridge. My hometown of Reseda, California plays a prominent role in many of my works. I live in Orange County with my wife for over 30 years. I have two children, a granddaughter, and lots of cats.

The stress of his legal and financial woes, along with uncontrolled diabetes, led to his death.

Seeing an average, law-abiding person get led down a dark and self-destructive path is a relevant issue today.(less)
