I love to write Historical Fiction. Using imagination to bring characters from the past to life vividly illustrates history. It allows both the author and the reader experience the drama, adventure, and excitement of the past and inform the future. My goal is to entertain and educate. Immerse yourself in one of my stories and enjoy the ride.
After 37 years in the airline business, I retired to write about my experiences. I’ve traveled the world with the world’s greatest airline—Pan American World Airways. I’ve sailed the coastal waters of Southern California in a Catalina 25. I’ve camped in thousands of campsites across the country and become a prima galleria (galley chef.) I’ve ridden a bicycle thousands of miles and a motorcycle across the country twice. I walk my dogs three miles every morning and swim twice a week. Currently, I’ve Decided to try and ride horses again after 30 years.. I have truly been blessed with a big life and I try to bring that experience to my characters.
My new book is the story of the first twenty years of Pan Am. If you don’t believe Pan Am was the greatest airline of the twentieth century, my story will convince you. Stay tuned …
