Profile Information

Fairbanks Alaska
About Me:
Author of three action packed novels and ten short stories, Basil has built an audience of tens of thousands of listeners to the free podcast audio versions of his books. You can download them from his website, He is currently working on novel number four and taking the getting published thing seriously. One day you will hear his name in the media...hopefully it will be because his books have been published.

The tapestry on which his tales began started at birth in rural interior Alaska and his school years among the Ohio cornfields where he wished to be anywhere else as long as it was exciting. He has lived in Alaska, San Diego, DC, Baltimore, and Ohio. He tried a career in the Marines but injuries sent him home after only six months. He worked as dining manager at NSA, owned a computer shop, was a carpenter, farmer, actor, lumberjack, voice actor, EMT, network admin, helpdesk supervisor, Boy Scout leader, IT trainer, radio talk host, youth minister, and after 9/11 was a sergeant in the Alaska Defense Force Coastal Scouts.

Until a recent ski injury he had been an avid weight lifter and could bench pres 420 lbs. Now he's limited to a bit on the eliptical machine each day and curling the occasional pint of Guinness.

He lives in Anchorage Alaska with his wife and sons.
