I have been reading science fiction since about the age of eleven when I discovered “Miss Pickerell Goes to Mars” by Ellen MacGregor.
The years passed by while I had careers as a computer programmer, music teacher, insurance office administrator, and logistics coordinator for an international freight company.
I took early retirement and decided to put to use all the books on writing that I had accumulated over the years, and actually start writing.

Novel: REVOLUTIONS (2015)
Novel: SACRED TRUST (2015)
Novel: KAIKU (2017)
Novel: AN ALIEN PERSPECTIVE (2017)
Novel: ALIEN INNKEEPER (coming soon)

I also dabble in speculative poetry.
