Thoreau said it's vain to sit down to write before you've stood up to live and I simply took that to the extreme. I've been a Forensic Investigator, a Navy Lieutenant, a wilderness skills instructor, a medical technologist, and a college police science instructor. And now, finally, I'm a writer. And a husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.

My Writing Roots

My grandparents are from Ireland so storytelling is genetic. But it was Sherlock Holmes who started it all. At the age of eight, I discovered the world of the master detective and my life was forever set in solving mysteries; whether in a hospital laboratory, a murder scene, or an Alaskan wilderness trail. Now, I solve them in the stories and novels I write.
