As a baby boomer and retired physician I'm devoting my time to writing medical, crime and historical thrillers. My life as an author began in 2003 after several individuals at Toastmaster's International speeches suggested "you should write a book". My first novel THE EYEMAN shows the consequences of untreated PTSD in a Vietnam War returnee. In the author's note of each of my 9 published novels I've revealed the reason behind each book creation. Even when I read other authors I look for the story behind the story. I live in retirement in San Antonio Texas spending several hours a day writing and editing my novels. I currently have over 34 story lines waiting to blossom into pertinent, poignant prose interlaced with humor and reality.
