About the Author
Beginning in New London, Connecticut, "traveler" soon became my middle name. Good fortune has allowed me to visit all fifty states and live in seven. On the foreign side, I've been to over sixty countries and lived in four. From London to Barcelona to Bishkek, my life has been exciting and varied. Sometimes my family came along but, unfortunately, on too many occasions, they could not. But every thrill ride has to end. My first novel, The Traitor of Oda, sprang from the result of having to say goodbye to adventure; if I could no longer do it, I'd write about it. Today, in Oceanside, California and my life is relatively serene, devoted to teaching and consulting with small businesses, with time for my still-growing family of four children, five grandchildren, and two step grandchildren. Ain't kids great! They're the best thrill ever!
