I decided I had to earn a living after BA and graduate studies in Modern European History, so I went back to school and eventually earned an MS in Engineering from USC in 1971. In the 1960s, I was stationed in Turkey and Germany for five years as a US Air Force Signals Intelligence Officer; and, I eventually lived in Europe for almost 8 years. While working in the military electronics field for forty years, my main function was to translate engineering jargon into understandable English and communicate it to senior decision makers in the US government in both written and verbal form. In the 1990s I began taking novel writing classes at UCLA and writing for pleasure. Now retired, I’m free to devote full time to writing. To my surprise and delight, soon after my first novel, THE BERLIN TUNNEL—A COLD WAR THRILLER was released, it became #13 on the Amazon Best Seller List for New Releases in Historical Mystery, Thriller and Suspense Fiction. It is also getting very favorable reviews. As an author, one gets so close to the book he has written that it is impossible for him to determine its merit—apparently, my FIRST book is pretty good. My second novel THE COLD WAR BEGINS was recently published and is the second volume in my planned Cold War trilogy. This trilogy is based on extensive research into Berlin during the spy-versus-spy era which followed World War II. I am in the process of writing the third volume of the trilogy which will be titled ANOTHER CRISIS. It takes the story into 1962 and the era of the Cuban Missile Crisis
