About Author

I was born in Sioux City, Iowa. After enlisting in the U.S. Navy, I was fortunate to travel and flew around the world in seven days. I began my career in emergency management as a civilian, raising four children, and working for several federal agencies. Over the years, many people have asked why I chose this profession, and I always give the same answer. If I could save one life, it would all be worth it. What I did not say was that I was out to save thousands of lives if a major disaster should occur. I have never regretted the path I chose. It was a remarkable career that led me right to the steps of the White House.
I now live in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia with my wife and man’s best friend, Sassy Lady. I continue to write and find myself busier now than when I had a nine-to-five job even though I was on standby all the time. I find deep satisfaction in writing and hope you enjoy my stories.
