The BIG news is that we successfully released a new thriller: “THE VIRUS CONSPIRACY”. It’s the third in what is starting to look and feel like a series.  Jim and Eve are back, camping in Michigan’s north woods and stumbling on trouble.   No historical flashbacks this time, but still a passing reference to a bit of history for those who seem to enjoy that sort of flavor.  A big surprise in this story…they may not be the good guys!  Did Jim and Eve murder a State Police woman?  You’ll have to read the book to find out!

     I hope you enjoy my books.  I write because I like the challenge of telling a good story. I tend to spend a great deal of time thinking over the story before I sit down to write, then it just seems to happen.  Something just tells me it’s time to get this story on paper.  It’s sort of like ducks and geese, they just have to head south in the fall and north in the spring.

    At first, my stories were written for family and friends.  I wroteBetrayal in the Louvre in my spare time.  My wife seemed to enjoy the periodic updates and my sister-in-law demanded I send her a copy.  So, I printed it on the home computer and put it in a three ring binder.  The binder was passed around from person to person.  Soon, I lost track of it as it made its way to different towns and states.  Eventually, my biggest fan, my wife, Eve, told me to just publish the thing as a book.  So, here we are.  

     I’ve published three books thus far: “BETRAYAL IN THE LOUVRE”“THE COLLINGWOOD LEGACY” and now “THE VIRUS CONSPIRACY”. A large SAMPLE of each book as well as some comments and historical background information for each book is available.  Just click on the link in the webpage menu.

     If you do decide to download an ebook or buy a hard copy please take the time to provide some feedback and leave a comment on Amazon.  It’s a great source of encouragement, and a road for improvement for me.  One woman sent me an email and pointed out a few misspellings in Betrayal in the Louvre.  Naturally, I immediately corrected the offending words.  And, I sent her a free copy of “Collingwood” as a thank you.  As it turned out, we exchanged several emails.  She is a wonderful person woman from England and I certainly appreciated our correspondence.  

     I enjoy the feedback, good and bad.  It’s an amazing thing when someone tells me they get lost in my stories, want to learn more about something I wrote about or can’t wait to see what happens next to my main characters.  Please send me an email (click “Contact Me”).  I really do look forward to your feedback!  



  1. It was a pleasure meeting you and your wife at the Owosso airport last Saturday. We have so many parallels in life I can’t believe it. From growing up on a Michigan farm, college , Air Force, marrying school teachers, inside info on the Purple Gang. I am reading your first book and am really enjoying it. Only found two misspellings so far. Are you coming to the airport in the future. I would like to buy hard cover books (reading kindle now) from you if you would sign them for me.

    • How nice to hear from you! Many thanks for buying the book, that’s exciting. I’m sorry about the spelling errors. Hopefully there aren’t many more, though I’m sure there are. A while back I read a Grishom novel and found five errors in one chapter, none in the rest of the book. I’m at the airport often, nearly every Tuesday night with CAP and will be there frequently in the next few weeks as we reinstall an engine on our airplane. We tend to go to Ron’s on Saturdays as we usually go to church in Saginaw on Sundays (talk about going to different ends of the state!) Doug, Gary and Ron all have my number if you want to give me a call. Hope to see/hear from you soon.
