I was born into a blue-collar family in Liverpool, England--missed The Beatles but did go to The Cavern a few times (a real dump!)

After immigrating to the US in the early 90s, I became a citizen and lived the American dream.

Burned out from twenty years in the corporate world, my wife, Joyce, and I bought a run-down, dog-friendly motel in Carolina Beach.

Eight years later, we tore it down and moved to Lake Lure, North Carolina, where we live with a couple llamas, two spoiled dogs, a brace of cookie-eating goats, numerous chickens, and one ferocious cat.

Oh, and I write fiction.

Coming Summer 2014.
Two weeks before Christmas, 2008, a stray Iraqi rocket explodes a few feet from three off-duty US Army Sergeants. The Military repairs their bodies, but the consequences of unseen injuries are more far-reaching. TBI and PTSD will wreck their careers, their families, and will force one soldier to make the ultimate sacrifice.
