In all, he has visited over seventy countries.
Newton served in the United States Navy as a submariner before receiving a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from Murray State University. After three years of teaching in a Kentucky juvenile detention facility, he entered the real estate field and worked in all of its facets in many cities throughout the United States. He and a partner eventually formed their own hotel development company. When that company sold, he retired to northeast Florida where he writes and remains actively involved in real estate.

He remains an enthusiastic domestic and international traveler, and continues to write both songs and fiction. His most recent novel is "The Blinding Tide". This work is the fifth in the Sand Crab Chronicles series.
