Overview

A deep cover agent emerged from Vietnam at the end of the war, but for him the war never ended. Out of Vietnam he brought a fervent sense of duty and debt, but the reasons are suppressed in his subconscious, because he can no longer bear to recall them. In order to pay a debt to his lost comrades, a debt he can no longer even visualize, he continues to serve his country, a country that he allowed to take away his identity so thoroughly that even he does not remember who he was or how he got to where he is. He exists, lives, and works alone, under different names in different places, completely outside the rules and laws of the country and society he protects. His identity gone and his life an endless cycle of missions, he is forever walking on the edge of an unmarked grave, waiting for the day he won't be fast enough, smart enough, good enough, or lucky enough--waiting for the day his debt is finally paid.

About the Author

I was born and raised in Decatur, Illinois, but moved to the Moweaqua area around 1991. I like small towns and rural settings, as does my wife of thirty-five years, Barbara. We have two grown children, John and Anna to whom I dedicated my first book, The First Suitor. I started writing about fifteen years ago as a diversion from my regular job as an attorney. At that time I had been practicing law in Central Illinois for about fifteen years and was looking for another avenue to exercise my writing and organizational skills. Now after thirty years of practicing law I would like to write full time, but yet I find myself full time in the law and part time in writing. I enjoy telling stories and some would say that all lawyers are born fiction writers, because fiction is all they write in the first place. I have to admit that there is some truth to that.

I have had five books published with Wings ePress, Inc., and more manuscripts in the works. I recently started the process of removing all of my books from Wings and putting them on Amazon in Kindle format and other digital sites. In the future I plan to publish all of my books in ebook format on various sites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Some new books will be going up soon, too.

Recently I have retired from the private practice of law and have relocated to Louisville, Kentucky.

I try to draw on my experiences in the practice of law and my life experiences in general to give realism to my stories and characters. In the 1970s I served in the U.S. Army as a Military Policeman and in the late '80s, I was a Captain in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General Corps, Army National Guard. I have been to Germany, France, Belgium, Holland, and many of the United States. I like to work the settings of the places I've been and things I've done into my stories. I write romance into almost every book, but it isn't always the main theme and it is never explicit or vulgar.

I am foremost and always an entertainer and that is why I write fiction, but I try to make it real and believable as well as entertaining.
