My Novels 

I am an author...

I have written two novels and published two other books independently. It's a tough game to play, and you probably won't make the bestseller list if you go the independent route, but it's one hell of a ride if you do.

Whither We Tend 

Simon Gates is a mild-mannered insurance agent from Stratford, Connecticut. Major Gus Spiros is a war-weary ex-contractor for the US Government. The two men meet by accident and start a series of events that will lead them both toward a war that will attempt to reclaim America. 

Just as Lincoln asked of the people in his House divided speech, Whither We Tend asks the question whether we are heading towards a war that will tear us apart or a war that will unite us as a stronger and better nation. The answer is entirely up to us.

The Sailboat 

Phillip Winters is a computer guy with a dream to set sail. His lawyer wife Lucy only half shares his vision, but begrudgingly follows Phillip to their first sailing class in the sailing capital of America, Annapolis, MD. She excels, while he falls behind.

Setting out to find the perfect boat, whether his wife approves or not, Phillip finds a storm-ravaged boat and gets in over his head, much to his wife's disapproval. They move to Beaufort, NC and fix up the derelict vessel without having the first clue of how to fix a boat or even how to sail for that matter.


The Sailboat is a cautionary tale about boat ownership and relationships, and demonstrates to those who are dreaming of ditching their COVID cocoon by heading out on the high seas that the live-aboard life is rarely smooth sailing.
