About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Author, Boat Captain
Location New Bern, North Carolina, United States
Introduction I'm a lifelong freelance writer with 300 articles published in national magazines over the years, including Reader's Digest, The Saturday Evening Post, Harper's, Troika, Yankee, Grit, Heartland USA, and AOPA Pilot. I'm a licensed boat captain, a licensed pilot, a fiddler, a motorcycle rider, and an avid reader of everything. I live in eastern North Carolina on a shore of the wide Neuse River. My suspense novels have been endorsed by top best-selling authors Lee Child, Ridley Pearson, and Stephen Coonts, and my debut novel, GUNS, won honorable mention at the London Book Festival. My short story collection, Dagger and other tales, includes an award-winning version of a yarn begun by Stephen King. I've got a new nonfiction book out called Where is Heaven? Intended for skeptical believers. I'm clawing my way up the literary mountain and the view is getting better all the way.
