About me

I am a history and writing professor, a retired naval officer, and an author. Although I’ve published mostly nonfiction, I actually prefer writing fiction, particularly historical fiction. Reading a good novel is an immensely satisfying experience. I get the same pleasure from writing one–only it lasts for several months rather than just a few days. My main interest in fiction is in the military/historical subgenre, so effectively represented by Patrick O’Brian and Bernard Cornwell.
