Hello, and thanks for visiting my site! If you’ve read one of my books and came to see the person behind it, then I also appreciate your taking the time to try out a new author.
I grew up in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, and ended up in the Phoenix, Arizona area. I’m still trying to figure out if that means there’s a ‘rising from the ashes’ theme to my life. I currently live in the “town” of Gilbert, in the East Valley, which is really the size of a small city.
I had the honor of attending the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and serving as a Military Intelligence officer in the U.S. Army through the rank of Captain. The tactical and strategic experience I gained while part of the intelligence community changed the way I think, and it’s left a signature stamp on my writing ever since.
When I re-entered the civilian world, I attended Arizona State University’s MBA program. Imagine my shock when being late for class or dressing in flip-flops wasn’t immediately addressed with swift, draconian punishment. Despite my resistance, I slowly adapted to this casual desert lifestyle and entered the business world having “converted” my deep skills of knowing the enemy.
Today, I work in high-tech and write whenever I have the chance. I also love trail running in the mountains to help “relax” and think of more diabolical story ideas. For some reason, my lizard brain likes hairpin turns and steep grades, but my body sometimes finds them perilous at high speed.
I continue to reconnect with old friends and make new ones, so please feel free to contact me and say hi!
