Influences

My influences have been the numerous Vietnam Veterans that I've known from the early 1960s at the onset of the war, until the present after observing the effect that the War had on them and their families. Working at an Air Force base for nearly twenty years put me in contact with more Vets on a daily basis. Dozens of men shared their stories with me and gave me permission to weave them into a fictional series beginning with my first novel, The Wind Whispers War.

Upcoming Works

The fifth book in this series will be available May 2009, Wine, Women and Worries. The sixth and final novel, Well Worth the Wait, will be released before the end of the year.
