Born and raised in Warren, Ohio, I write adventure fiction in many genres. I have forty of my novels offered for Amazon Kindle in the Unlimited Program. I have four continuing series offerings - Hard Case 1-8, Cold Blooded 1-7, Rick Cantelli, P.I. 1-5, and the New Adult paranormal series Demon 1-5, all with RJ Parker Publishing Inc. Recent releases are Novella Double Feature I & II, the paranormal novel Blood Lust, Cold Blooded VII: Hell on Earth, Hard Case VIII: Kingdom of Hell, Rick Cantelli, P.I. IV: Shades of Death, and Demon V: Dark Illusion. I served aboard the USS Ranger (CVA61) from 1969 until November of 1972. I earned an AA degree in Auto Technology from Chabot College in Hayward, CA, and a BA degree in English from Cal State Hayward. My hobbies are basketball, backpacking, and scuba diving. My favorite dive spot is Point Lobos near Pacific Grove, CA.
