At the urging of my friends I sat down and wrote my first novel, Kwajalein Stories, when I was 65 years old. I remember wanting to write back in High School but that never panned out. Is my past filled with experience as a newspaper reporter or do I have a list of writing courses and a degree in journalism under my belt? No, just your basic college English course. At this stage in my life writing is just something that I enjoy doing. Right now I'm in the process of finishing the proof work on my fifth novel, James Hedges. Discreet Inquiries. Private Investigations.

If I had to guess the reason for getting such a late start it would be my belief that an author should have some life experience. Back in 1966 I volunteered Army, Airborne, Special Forces and that changed my life and for the better. During the Army's 37 week long Special Forces Aidman course I learned how to study and by the time I was a Green Beret Medic I had seen a little bit of life that few others get to know. College was a snap after that. I got my BS in Nursing from Cal State University Los Angeles in 1973 and worked as an RN until 2000 when I retired due to medical reasons. As an RN I worked in Various Los Angeles area Hospital Emergency Rooms for 10 years and also worked the UCLA Cardiac Cath lab for 9. On the flip side of the coin I also know what it's like to be a Hospital patient having gone under the knife more times than I like to remember. It is interesting being an author and hopefully I'll catch up on all the books I've missed writing.
