My first novel, “Deadly Contract” was inspired by some of my experiences working overseas.
My second novel, “Deadly Intrigue”, is centered on property fraud, and a whole lot more.
My third novel “Reunion for Murder” deals with a series of mass murders, connected with a college reunion.
I've also a short story collection called "Deadly Journeys", where what seem to be straightforward journeys become life-threatening!

Aside from writing fiction, my passion has been to take steps to avoid the illnesses so common in later years. I’ve made many notes on research findings and publications, and have now published these in “Surviving 70 - A Strategy for Longevity”.

I was disappointed that Hooke’s life had successes but he never seemed to really enjoy it, and was always bitter towards rivals like Newton. He worked a lot with Christopher Wren on London post-1666-fire, but as with his sciences and Newton etc., his ...more

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On!' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
