WELCOME! Born the son of a Pittsburgh area steelworker, I was raised with sports, automobiles, rock ‘n’ roll, a strong faith, and an indomitable spirit. I was educated in biology, pharmacy, and leadership & business ethics and trained in martial arts. I soon developed a passion for writing historical fiction and essays on Celtic history and culture, sports medicine, alternative medicine, and ethics. I have published numerous essays and articles in local, national, and international publications, a college textbook, and on various websites and have made numerous presentations and lectures on alternative medicine to universities, health systems, corporations, and professional organizations. Member of Clan Gregor and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. I also enjoy collecting original & antique Mark Twain and Edgar A. Poe items, Scottish history & culture, vintage baseball, and cultivating bonsai.
