We’re building a boat in Turkey!

I find it difficult to believe that I have let an entire year go by without blogging. I have no excuse other than I have felt like being silent what with all the other noise in the world. I’ve decided it’s time to change that. New year, new blog.


For those of you who have read my book, KNIGHT’S CROSS, you will remember that the book begins with Riley and Cole going to Turkey from Rhodes to visit th

Thanks for being a friend. I just finished delivering a Hunter 50 to San Francisco from San Diego. Nice trip, nasty weather! Saturday night I'm presenting a program on my book, From Boys 2 Men, An Adventure in Paradise to the Mission Bay Yacht Club.
