Hello and thank you for looking at my stories on Noisetrade. I’m a bestselling author of action-adventure and speculative
fiction novels. I place selected short stories on Noisetrade to reach readers
who might not find me on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Many Fires, the first book in my post-apocalyptic Strengthen What
Remains series came out in paperback, Kindle and on Audible in August 2013.
Within two weeks the novel appeared on the Kindle Science Fiction
Post-Apocalyptic list, reaching #10, and reached #1 on the list on December 2,
2014. The second book in the series, A
Time to Endure, reached the #1 position on the Amazon Kindle war fiction
genre list just over a month after release and then again in January of 2016.
At the same time Braving the Storms
reached the #8 spot.
I grew up in the mountains of Colorado and earned an
Associate in Arts degree from Mesa State College in Grand Junction. When money
for college ran low I enlisted in the United States Navy as a Cryptologic Technician.
I thought I would do four years and then use my veteran's benefits to go back
My first assignment was with a U.S. Navy unit at the Royal
Air Force base in Edzell, Scotland. While on leave in Israel I met Lorraine
from Plymouth, Devon, England and married her the next year. Together we spent
the remainder of my twenty year naval career traveling across the United States
from Virginia to Hawaii and on to Guam, Japan and beyond.
Even before I retired from the U.S. Navy I wrote short
stories. In July of 2012 my debut novel, Titan
Encounter, a science fiction space adventure, came out on Kindle and later
in paperback. My second book, Final Duty
- The Speculative Fiction Anthology, was released in January of 2013.
Today, Lorraine and I live on a small farm in Western
Washington State and you can easily find and follow me online.
