Bernard Lee DeLeo

Born and raised in Warren, Ohio, I write adventure fiction in many genres. I have fifty-one of my novels offered for Amazon Kindle in the Unlimited Program. I have four continuing series offerings - Hard Case 1-11, Cold Blooded 1-10, Rick Cantelli, P.I. 1-8, and the New Adult paranormal series Demon 1-8, all with RJ Parker Publishing Inc. Recent releases are Hard Case XI: Killing Field, the paranormal novel Blood Lust, Cold Blooded X: Hell's Half Acre, Hard Case X: No Mercy, and Rick Cantelli, P.I. VIII: Red Ruin. I served aboard the USS Ranger (CVA61) from 1969 until November of 1972. I earned an AA degree in Auto Technology from Chabot College in Hayward, CA, and a BA degree in English from Cal State Hayward. My hobbies are basketball, backpacking, and scuba diving. My favorite dive spot is Point Lobos near Pacific Grove, CA.
