My words. My world.

Writing What I Know

My writing roots

My portfolio includes a world of mystery and thriller stories, opinion columns, journalism, comic books and technical documentation, derived from and set within the places around the world that I have called home over the years.

These are the words and worlds of my life. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed - and continue to enjoy - writing them. 

Projects In-Progress

Upcoming projects include:

  • The Mid-Winter Kills, my pseudo-biographical detailing the exploits of investigative reporter Wil Jericho, who uses skills gained in a career with U.S. Army Intelligence and 22 years of journalism to dig behind the illusions, lies and cover-ups he encounters in seemingly ordinary news stories that turn into far more than what the front page tells. The second in the series (a prequel), Gallant Eagle, and third book, Crystal's Demise, are also pending.
  • The Omaha Kid, a novella about a desperate poker player in 1880s Nebraska who finds himself in a game where the stakes are higher than he's ever known, or ever imagined.
  • A Critical Aye: 30 Years of Pointing at the Emperor, anthology of newspaper opinion columns highlighting nearly four decades of political and social observation.
  • The Crockpot Manifesto: Everything Good Doesn't Come in a Can, a cookbook for those who would like to advance beyond ramen noodles and microwave spaghetti, who don't have their own television show and million-dollar kitchen or any training in cooking whatsoever.
  • Shadows of the Mind, a graphic novel of illustrated short stories with a decidedly dark and introspective approach.

I also have a portfolio of comic book and related work that includes a script for television's Star Trek: The Next Generation, several projects for DC Comics®, Marvel Comics® and Malibu Comics®, as well as contributing writer and editorial projects for several independent and various Internet publishers.
