About me

I grew up in Southern California and fell in love with writing because my parents wouldn’t let me play with the neighbors. I started college as a creative writing major, but my father told me that he would never pay for a degree in something that wouldn’t earn a paycheck so I became a historian and history teacher (AP U.S. history). I live in Colorado where I spend time with my wife and son, seek representation for my novel THE DOGS OF HELL, research my next novels WAKARUSA and DUTCH, write book reviews for HNS, and write/edit curriculum (social studies) for various for- and non-profit organizations.
