Influenced by the works of Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Harlan Ellison, and Theodore
Sturgeon, he began writing in his early teens. He's also a James Bond fanatic and has read
every Ian Fleming novel. As a boy, he was inspired by "The Twilight Zone," and focused on
horror and sci-fi as well as suspense. He also loves humor, frequently including it in his
stories, as evidenced in his DEMON CHASER series of five novels. His novels, WAGON DRIVER,
AND DARKNESS FELL, and AFTER DARKNESS FELL, all focus on futuristic dystopian societies.
APPRENTICE and STEPPING OUT OF MY GRAVE deal with death, and are both spiced with humor.
His FUNNY DETECTIVE series is another example of his humorous take on death. His novel, IN
ANOTHER REALM, deals with a world only our subconscious could be aware of. A RIPPLE IN
TIME, AWAKENED, and YESTERDAY'S JOURNEY are tales dealing with illusion and the
imagination. COLORS, FATAL INNOCENCE, ESCAPE CLAUSE, BEYOND RECOGNITION, BEYOND GUILT, and
REDEMPTION are all suspense stories. Many of his stories take place in Orlando, Florida,
where he lived and worked for more than twenty years.
