Born and raised in Warren, Ohio, I write adventure fiction in many genres. I have forty-five of my novels offered for Amazon Kindle in the Unlimited Program. I have four continuing series offerings - Hard Case 1-9, Cold Blooded 1-8, Rick Cantelli, P.I. 1-7, and the New Adult paranormal series Demon 1-7, all with RJ Parker Publishing Inc. Recent releases are Novella Double Feature I, II & III, the paranormal novel Blood Lust, Cold Blooded VIII: Rule of Nightmare, Hard Case IX: Isle of Darkness, Rick Cantelli, P.I. VII: Midnight Land, and Demon VII: Disciples of Darkness. 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.
