Contrary to the advice of my father, I became a lawyer and spent the next twenty-seven years proving that old Dad was right. A major accomplishment of my legal career was the collection of unusual experiences that have become the basis of much of my writing. I left the legal profession in 1994 to pursue, fulltime, my love of writing.

I began writing for newspapers at age ten and continued this interest as an avocation until my mid-50s. I was the primary contributor to a 1989 news series about Denver’s controversial Two Forks Dam. It was awarded Best Series by the Colorado Press Association.

For nine years I wrote Headgate, a monthly magazine column about water resources for agriculture. My environmental news reporting was highlighted by a 1995 story about pollution to a naturally pure underground water supply from a municipal sewage plan.

MY first novel, The Dam, was used in manuscript form by a citizen-activist group to help expose the dangerous deterioration of a major dam in the West. A tribute to a childhood mentor was published in 1997 as The Legend of Ernie The Bear. My short stories have been published, beginning with Xanadu, the literary journal of Doane College.

I now live in the greater-Denver area and have three grown sons. I am offering, for free, a new story of murder and intrigue called Warning: Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear.
