Bewildering Stories biography

I am a police sergeant retired after twenty-eight years of service and a recipient of both Valor and Lifesaving awards. I have also spent the last seven years teaching field training and background investigation at the local police academy.

While in high school and college, I wrote a great deal and thought I would become a prolific author, even receiving Second Place in the B. Dalton Bookseller Short Story Contest in 1983.

But then I went to work, developed a career, and built a family; but, with the support of my wife, my children, and my friends, I have returned to writing. My stories “Talking to Strangers” has appeared in Close 2 the Bone, and “A Burning Love” in Kings River Life. Another story, “Extrication” is scheduled to appear in Over My Dead Body. Many of my stories are currently about Ranger Birdie McLaren. If you like her in “Tears for Lucifer,” please look for her elsewhere.
