My first novel published

My first novel published in Jan 2010.


Eric Hoffer Award

Cold Winter's Kill was selected as a 2010 Eric Hoffer finalist. Loose Ends Kill was a 2011 finalist.

Welcome to my book website and the thrilling adventures of Jim West, the main character in eight of my published mystery/thrillers, and Clint Smith, my  protagonist introduced in four of my books.  I also have had a lot of fun writing four juvenile fiction books with the assistance of my grand daughter.  These fantasy suspenses make up my Enchanted Coin Series.  Stay tuned!

I was extremely fortunate to have had many fascinating experiences as an Air Force criminal investigator and counterintelligence officer. During my career, I was able to do a lot of traveling and worked with a number of different police and security agencies. Although my books are strictly fiction and not based on any actual people or investigations, my real life experiences did help in filling my head with numerous plots and character ideas.

Since retiring from the Air Force, I have written eight books in the Jim West series. My goal was to do five, if possible, and then to regroup.  I'm proud to say that I'm up to eight  (soon to be nine) Jim West mysteries, four novels in my Clint Smith international thriller series, and four books in my Enchanted Coin series for young readers. 

By the way, it was the Jim West series that helped me win the Military Writers Society of America's Author of the Year Award for 2013.
