About the Author

I would be best described as a father, husband, writer, musician, adventurer, explorer, inventor, and faithful friend. I value God, country, family, friendship, loyalty, honesty, and integrity.

Son of a sailor, raised in Maine, schooled in Florida, at one time or another, I have called Bar Harbor, Presque Isle, St. Pete, Miami, New York City, Easton, Connecticut, Culver Indiana and Pacific Palisades, California, my home.

My beautiful wife Merryl and I have been together since 1984 and we raised two extraordinary children who now live in New York and Miami.

But we are not empty nesters by any stretch of the imagination. We live with our lovable chocolate lab, Carson, and our predator cat, Maya. Of course, I’m not sure if she’s ours or we’re hers.

I love golf and thought the perfect swing would come if I simply bought a golf course. Alas, another one of my failed assumptions.

Me: What did you think of my game

Caddy: Interesting – what do you call it.

On the other hand, I love music and once owned a recording studio in NYC. I’m still playing with a rock-blues band called, ‘Preservation Road,’ and the clubs keep paying us, so we must be doing something right. If you are ever in Palm Beach County, look us up. We’ll be playing somewhere.

So now I write books. It started at the end of high school when I was offered a writing scholarship. After college, it took me an additional thirty-five years before I got my first book completed, but now I have four. Apparently wisdom needs time to marinate.

As an avid history buff who believes in research, and more research, I tend to look for hidden agendas that can be linked by common threads. So it is only natural that my stories revolve around ancient mysteries, alternative histories, and shadowy figures that pull the strings of what goes on in the world.

Weaving together known truths, ancient myths, arcane facts, and legends, I try to craft tales of suspense and intrigue that can only be unraveled through the lense of unconventional insight. Remember, just because someone labels something a conspiracy theory, doesn’t mean it’s not true…

I hope you enjoy the stories, and I promise you will learn a few things along the way. If anything causes you to ask, ‘Is this real or fiction’ – search the web. You might be surprised.

I’m prone to believe my life has been best described by a quote from that period of lost years when I tuned in, dropped out, and followed the Grateful Dead.

What a long strange trip it’s been.

From the wilds of South Florida, in the extraordinary year 2020

Wishing you peace, curiosity, and an insatiable desire for the truth
