I am a retired police officer with 30 years of law enforcement experience. Instead of writing police reports, I now write fast-paced, suspenseful thrillers with unique storylines and characters. I honed my creative writing skills for three years with my county newspaper, The Monroe Evening News, and worked as a columnist for Onshore-Offshore Magazine. I completed my first novel, Vatican Vengeance, after retiring from law enforcement and have since written four more. I am currently working on my fifth.
My chief writing influences are John Sanford, Lee Child, Robert B. Parker, Vince Flynn, and Daniel Silva. I currently reside in New Port Richey, Florida, with my wife, Cindy, and our adorable rescue dog Penny. I also enjoy spending time outdoors, fishing, hiking, and bow hunting.
