When I graduated with my Chemical Engineering degree Professor Brosilow asked what I wanted to do. I replied, “Write a novel.”
My birthdate won me the December 1st, 1969 draft lottery so I joined the Navy. I didn’t see the world, but I did see Washington, D.C. where my unit worked with the now infamous NSA, the National Security Agency. I still didn’t write.
Instead I got a Master’s in Business from Harvard and embarked on a career in finance. Towards the end of that pursuit I finally started to write.
Now I bring characters and worlds to life on a daily basis. I live in the quaint fishing village of Poulsbo, on Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula with my wife, Vizsla Ruby, and Pomeranian emergency back-up dog Otto. Besides writing, I fish, hike, and travel.
