I was born in a small Kansas farm town and moved to Saudi Arabia in 1971. I lived for two years in sweltering heat of Al Khobar, and then another three on the high plains of Taif. When I was 12 years old my father bought me a Suzuki 125 Enduro. From then on I cruised around the Saudi Arabian desert, running into the occasional band of Beduins and having adventures the envy of any high-spirited boy.

In 1975 we came back to find the United States mired in recession. Dad managed to find a job half-way around the world working for the Shah of Iran. I attended High School at Tehran American School up until the fall of 1978 when the revolution reared its ugly head. After the fire at the Cinema Rex in Abadan, followed by Black Friday in Tehran, my mother, sister and I boarded a plane and headed back to the States. My father didn’t depart until February, 1979, two weeks after the return of Ayatollah Khomeini.

Back in the States I went from a senior class of 600 students to a graduating class of twenty-three. Culture shock! I left Kansas after graduation for Texas where I attended Texas A&M at Commerce. With my degree in hand I moved to Austin, and between clubbing my nights away on 6th Street, I took part in a little thing called the Technology Boom.

I came to Hawaii on a two-year tech contract that stretched out to never leaving. One weekend I flew over to the Big Island of Hawai’i and made my way to Kilauea, the most active volcano on this bright blue ball. The amazing lava flows resulted in fantastic photographs of brazen acts of stupidity. I survived the volcano in spite of myself, and descended into Hilo town where I faced another unquenchable fire - my wife, Judith.

A whirlwind courtship, a baby boy at 43, and ‘Blue Hawaii’ as our wedding march. Island life has ignited my imagination and given me time to reflect, and from that reflection I write. My life drifts along with the gentle trade winds as the words flow. Dreams come true in Blue Hawaii. Yes sir, they do.

Four Trails: A Quartet of Country Tales Fiction - General

FREE at Smashwords! Four Trails is a quartet of stories with country roots that stretch beyond the cowboy genre. Included are three short stories and the novella, "Honky Tonk Gal." These aren't your grandfather's campfire tales. From knocking at heaven's door to beer drinkin', hell raisin' and wrasslin' with deadly vipers, these wild west stories run the gamut of emotions. Each story is completely different from the next but all are tied to the land. A 92 year old Japanese Hawaiian paniolo dreams of unrequited love, a small-town loser entertains a stranger with tales of rattlesnake hunting in the badlands for Texas, a preacher's grandson confronts his lack of faith as he stares into the abyss, and when push comes to shove, a cowgirl's gotta do what a cowgirl's gotta do. Four different trails, four different tales. All for FREE at Smashwords. Enjoy!

Sons of the Great Satan Fiction - Historical

When American teenager Joey Andrews and his family arrive in Tehran, Iran in 1976 they find an expatriate paradise within one of the world's oldest civilizations. Through the bold and imperious leadership of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, this ancient land had been thrust into the modern age bringing great progress to some and seething resentment to others. It is the twilight of an empire, and the last golden hours before the fall of darkness.

Sons of the Great Satan leads the reader through a cataclysmic event as seen through the lives of the Andrews family of Peligrosa, Texas and the Zadehs of Tehran, Iran. Joey Andrews and Farhad Zadeh form a unique friendship amid a naive wonderland of teenage sex, drugs and rock'n'roll, only to see their world explode into a firestorm of violence that rocks a nation.

As a work of historical fiction, Sons of the Great Satan is a tale of culture clash, international politics, heroism, friendship, cowardice and sinister betrayal. Integrity and belief are put to the test as the Shah of Iran, President Jimmy Carter and the Ayatollah Khomeini are engulfed in a whirlwind of chaos and rebellion. From the White House to Niavaran Palace to the streets of Tehran, the actions of the powerful and the dispossessed play out on the world stage forever changing the lives of those who called Tehran home in the late 1970s.
