About the Author...
The day after I turned 21 I sold a short story to a dubious men’s magazine. I was paid $250, and another fifty bucks when it was reprinted in one of the mag’s other titles. On the strength of that, I declared myself graduated from college, and from that point on I’ve made a living as a writer.
I freelanced for sports magazines, wrote for The Disney Channel, published a monthly scriptwriting newsletter, and co-authored (with Jurgen Wolff) two books on scriptwriting: Successful Scriptwriting and Top Secrets: Screenwriting. I moved on to a career writing TV commercials (well over 200 of them); and have now focused on novels.
When I’m not writing, I serve as a wildlife and marine mammal rescue volunteer. My wife and I also trap/foster feral kittens and cats for the local cat rescue. To stay well-rounded, I’m a swimmer, a pickleballer, an ex-boxer and a black belt in Tang Soo Do (which comes in handy when writing action scenes).
I live in Cambria, on California’s Central Coast, along with my wife and far too many cats.
