More About the Author
Born and raised in upstate New York, sunshine and the University of Southern California drew me west. My Air Force service was followed by 20 years as a C-130 aircraft maintenance officer with the California Air National Guard. From 1980-2005 I was Chairman of the Department of Aeronautics at Mt. San Antonio College and led the college's Flying Team to championships as Top Community College in the US seven times. Meanwhile, I continued to accrue flying time as a FAA certified flight instructor, logging 7000 hours. I now reside in a floating cabin on Powell Lake in British Columbia and a city-folk condo in Bellingham, WA.
I am an outdoors kind of guy. You will find me most often at my floating cabin on Powell Lake boating, hiking, fishing, reading or writing. I use my quad to explore the back country. I enjoy touring inlets and bays along the BC coast in my 30-foot Bayliner, as well as flying to remote destinations in my Piper Arrow.
My book series entitled 'Coastal British Columbia Stories' highlights the people, places, and off-the-grid adventures in a region where mountains drop into the sea and lifestyles focus on self-reliance and a different sense of purpose. As for writing, non-fiction is my main contribution to the writing world, but science fiction is my passion.
