I'm currently retired from sales and marketing work, but am back into business. Education in Political Science. I'm a veteran of the Marine Corps, before and during the Viet Nam era, which has a profound influence on most of what I write, whether mystery or literary. Am the founder of the short-lived International Crime Study Club of the early '80s, established for the purpose of investigating old and cold cases of murder and missing persons. And like my character, Wray Larrick, I just hate it when such a case goes unsolved in real life. Expect to live way past a hundred, unless somebody runs over me or shoots me first, which is a real possibility.

Movies And TV Shows I Like:
60 Minutes(news, documentaries & investigations), some crime & police series, including Shark, Kojak, Andy Griffith, Crime Story, Seinfeld, Tonight Show, the general run, but not overly so--seen'em all a million times, could write the damn things.
