Editorial Reviews


"A note from the author: Someone is a really cheap s.o.b. That person orders a copy of one of my books; then, returns the copy for a refund. This causes problems for everyone involved in order fulfillment, including the author who receives a report of returned books. I am pissed off and if I could, I would punch you in the mouth a few times..!!! If you cannot afford a few dollars for a very good travel photography book, stay the hell away from my books. I really do not need your type of stupid crap..!!!"

From the Author

More About the Author

The photo I'm using for my 'Amazon Author Central' page is one of my favorites because the photo was taken poolside on a small private estate on the island of Crete, Greece, (where I lived) and it is a reminder of a really fantastically happy and adventurous year-long excursions 'into the world' ...beyond the safety and familiarity of life in the USA.

The photo reminds me that I might travel the world and experience lots of interesting, strange, and exciting events and places and people... but, none of it really matters if I cannot write about it, take photos of it, make a product that people can share and enjoy, and find a bit of themselves within while viewing and reading about my worldly adventures.

My main work is connecting my readers with a slice, a bit of the spice, of traveling the world through my work products - color digital photographs and candid, succinct, and entertaining prose, poetry, and fiction (eg: mostly based upon true events, etc.).

I am also a big fan of the 'little things' in life that often go unnoticed and unrecorded; but, when they are, often facilitate 'Ah Ha' and 'Wow..!' moments for my book readers and my photography viewers.

My travel photography books are a bit expensive. There are some things I will not sacrifice and compromise... and two of these are 1). sharing beautiful large-format (eg: 7-inch by 10-inch or larger) photographs; and, 2). creating books which the reader and owner will love, from day one, and for the rest of their life - quality is not a cheap thrill, in my opinion.

Thanks for reading all of this. I rarely write about myself; but, the Amazon 'Author Central' staff was rather adamant upon insisting that I do so.

BTW: My personal website is ... and my sole proprietor (eg: doing business as) website is

Format: Paperback
A note from the author - photographer - publisher:

The new book covers should provide a better idea of the book's contents. The book contains sixty-six high-resolution color digital photographs that are representative of the flowers, shrubs, vines and trees native to the island of Crete.

Quality photography requires quality publication, and publishing such a book is a bit more expensive than your typical mass-market paperback - of course, you, the reader-viewer, know that.

I hope to return to Crete and continue photographing its natural environment, and to publish an updated volume of 'The Flora Of Crete'. Will you please help me to do that by purchasing this current volume of this book title? Your purchase, your support, will help make this future trip a reality.
