Spotlight On Indie Author Actionwriter
indie author Actionwriter

I started writing on our high schoold newspaper and in our yearbook. When called to active duty during Korea, I wrote for the station newspaper and did public information releases and gave tours of the facility for government VIP and celebrities while waiting on my aircrew school to accept me. I qualified as a flight engineer and then did a total of 43 years active and reserve with the USN. My experiences during those years are the basis for the EXTRACTION series with Tim Ryan. In 2000 I retired from a corporation I founded in California and moved to Texas where I built a home in the beautiful hill vountry and started writing and publishing my books full time. I love flying space available on militry aircraft ( one of the retired benefits) and visiting military bases and talking with our active duty people that presently serve this nation and defend our freedoms.

Here are my books

Tim Ryan is a "weekend warrior" in a reserve unit in California. Usually he does one weekend a month for his reserve obligation but he gets a chance to do some extra flying as a flight engineer by delivering a Type C54 aircraft to the Air america Group in Viet Nam. He returns home after an adventure with his buddies in Olongopo Phillippines and a girl that has some gold from a WW2 treasure left by Ymashita. He finds he has lost his job but Air America wants him to come to work full time for them so he returns to Laos to fly as a kicker and flight engineer. He gets involved with a local uprising, captured, his aircraft destroyed my motar fire and he is left to survive in the Laotian jungle for two weeks. He manages to survive but finds that CIA accuses him of smggeling gold and he is kicked out and returns home where he and some veteran pals decide to return to Laos and get the remainder of the gold treasure. the story only gets beter after that and reminds the reder of something out of Terry and The Pirates.
