Born and raised in upstate New York, sunshine and the University of Southern California drew me west. My Air Force service was followed by 20 years as a C-130 aircraft maintenance officer with the California Air National Guard. From 1980-2005 I was Chairman of the Department of Aeronautics at Mt. San Antonio College and led the college’s Flying Team to championships as Top Community College in the US seven times. Meanwhile, I continued to accrue flying time as a FAA certified flight instructor, logging 7000 hours. I now reside in a floating cabin on Powell Lake in British Columbia and a city-folk condo in Bellingham, WA.
I’m an outdoors kind of guy. You’ll find me most often at my floating cabin on Powell Lake with my wife Margy. It’s the perfect location for boating, hiking, fishing, reading, writing, and stargazing with my 8-inch Meade LX-90 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. At our remote off-the-grid location, nighttime seeing is excellent from the cabin’s front deck.
Science fiction writing is my passion. It started with Inbound to Earth and now there are five titles to choose from. I also write non-fiction. My book series entitled Coastal British Columbia Stories highlights the people, places, and off-the-grid adventures in a region where mountains drop into the sea and lifestyles focus on self-reliance and a different sense of purpose.
All titles are available in print and Kindle formats through Amazon and other major online booksellers.
