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.

Quotation – June 23, 2018

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.


Theodore Roosevelt


ALIEN INNKEEPER
