Born in Illinois, and having lived in New Mexico and Kansas before settling into life in the Pacific Northwest, I like to draw on my observations and experiences in life when it comes to my writing.

An avid amateur photographer, I love to travel the Northwest in my free time and take great pride in my role as a single father to my son.  I hadn’t initially planned to stay in the Seattle area when I moved here in 1994, but have decided I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

As of March 2017, I am working on my first full length novel ‘The Pepper House’, with the intent to have it completed and self-published sometime this summer or early fall.  Sooner would be better though.

In the meantime, I plan to publish short stories and novellas and hope that you enjoy my most recent one ‘A Day In October’, currently available on Amazon for Kindle.

Thank you for checking out my site and please feel free to also visit my photography page!
