On a warm summer morning in 1962, I was born in a small town in Massachusetts and am the second eldest in a family of eight children. I am a happily married husband and I live in East Tennessee with my wife, mother, and my Shih-poo named "Ewok". I have two daughters, a son, a step-daughter and a step-son and am also the proud grandfather of three beautiful girls. I am a disabled veteran that has taken an interest in computer games to pass the time. One day I made a friend on one of those online games with chat that turned out to be screenwriter and movie director Derek Milton. He and I became great friends and after a few weeks of talking. He gave me a couple of his screenplays to read and I was hooked. I knew at that point I wanted to try writing. After days of not being able to come up with a story to write, I had a dream of three teens on another planet and in a cave. That was it; I knew what had to be done. I sat down at the computer and over the course of three months I had written my first book, "Soleri". I knew he couldn't stop there, so I continued writing and "Guardians Alliance" was born. I have also published a children's picture book called, "Squazles" about not judging others and did the book design for Cameron Titus's "A to Z book: A Habitat for Humanity Project". My fourth novel, "Deep Screams", is a science fiction/horror/paranormal thriller that became the Books and Authors.net's Best Science Fiction release for 2011. I was also voted by The Author's Show's "50 Best Writers You Should be Reading for 2011". My fifth release is called, "Dragon's Bow" a tale of sister vs. sister and good vs. evil. My latest is a collaboration novel and screenplay with Producer Marlene Mendoza called, "The Mob", a 1930s tale of a woman's revenge for the death of her father. In my other life, I have taken on writing screenplays which have done for three of my books, "Deep Screams, Dragon's Bow, and Teleported (based on Soleri)" all have been optioned for movies by Gilt entertainment. I have also written an additional screenplay with Marlene Mendoza based on the novel, "The Galaxy Watch: A Galacteran Legacy" that is owned by Gilt Entertainment.
