I have been a professional science fiction and mystery writer since 1972, and a professional illustrator and graphic artist since 1969 (illustrated "Machine Tools" and "Hoists, Cranes and Derricks" by Dr. Herbert S. Zim).
I began writing fiction intensively after military service and sold my first story to Analog Science Fiction Magazine in 1972. Numerous other short stories and five novels followed. The first two novels, HOUNDSTOOTH and A GAME OF TITANS, were large-scale techno-thrillers (ten years before Tom Clancy started doing them). THE GODS OF CERUS MAJOR was science fiction adventure. MORLAC: THE QUEST OF THE GREEN MAGICIAN was an epic fantasy novel, and DEATH HUNT ON A DYING PLANET was a science fiction adventure.
I have worked at Community Newspapers in Miami for more than eleven years as a reporter and contributing editor, covering everything from local politics, feature stories and "positive people" stories to new business openings, with roughly 1,000 by-lined stories published.
I have recently completed a Steampunk (Victorian Science Fiction) screenplay that my Hollywood agent is showing to major producers, finished writing an unusual sci-fi spy novel, AGGIE & AGENT X, and have added several new eBooks to those I already have on Amazon (HOUNDSTOOTH, MYSTERIES AT MIDNIGHT, THE CROSS OF ST. ANNE, MURDER IN DEER PARK and JOLLY ROGER).
