For the past 40 years I have been an illustrator and writer. As an artist, I have exhibited in The Smithsonian, worked for Warner Bros. and Disney and been able to travel the world with the Air Force creating works of art for the National Archives. With them, I even went as far as McMurdo Base in the Antarctic along with James Cameron. As a writer, it has been my privilege to see my published works, my offspring, doing so well out in the world. Thank you my readers! I live in Florida now where I teach college (Game Art Design for the Art Institute) and do K-9 Search & Rescue with my dog Thor. I also host a talk show each Monday night, at 7PM, EST, at My guests are exciting authors who talking about their newest books and their approaches to writing. My goals are to continue to bring you intriguing and exciting stories to read, and, help find the lost with my K9 partner, Thor.
