My first thoughts of writing was in my early years when I picked up a Don Pendelton paperback. His action scenes and pacing got me hooked. I am a guy who has been writing since I was a kid. When I was eleven, I wrote a sci-fi story about a huge asteroid that was moving toward Earth and about the astronauts who are sent to blow it up. When ARMAGEDDON came out I said, "Hey, I wrote that when I was 11!" My big literary love is the detective story and my first three books are about John Logan, a former spy now turned private detective, living in Coral Bay, Fl and trying to leave his old life behind him. Sometimes it doesn't work out too well for him. As you might guess, I grew up on Raymond Chandler and Robert B. Parker.Other influences are Eric Van Lustbader, Robert Jordan, and the aforementioned Don Pendelton. In addition to writing, I like guitar, reading (naturally) chess and golf.
