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 of nearly 30 years. I have two children, a granddaughter, and lots of cats.

Lessons from stories past

Book promotion can be fun, but at some point, you have to get back to writing. When deciding what to do next, I like to look through my boneyard and see what materials I can use. In the process, I can revisit lessons I’ve learned from past writing projects. The baseball cap I’m wearing is […]
