Bill grew up in West Tennessee, riding his bike on narrow rural roads lined with wild blackberry bushes, in the days before urban sprawl. He spent those long rides dreaming of new worlds of adventure. Childhood for him was one interesting activity after another, from front yard football to naval miniatures, but from the very beginning reading was the central pillar of his life. Any and all military history books fascinated him, beginning before age 8. By his teenage years he had discovered J.R.R. Tolkien and Robert E. Howard, Robert Heinlein and Fritz Leiber. Teachers ripped comic books out of his hands during Spanish and Accounting class. Oops! Turning 18 after the Vietnam War ended, when the Armed Forces were shedding members and no longer recruiting them, joining his uncles and brother in the military wasn't an option even if he hadn't been medically disqualified. Thus, in the post-Vietnam War era, college found him searching for his favorite rock groups, smuggling beer into his dorm room and generally trying to find his place in the world. He read a book a day back then, sometimes two, a heady mixture of military non-fiction, fantasy and science fiction. He even went to class sometimes. After college he turned to writing history and non-fiction and was published a number of times, including in World War Two magazine. In September of 2014 he wrote the first pages of what would become Standing The Final Watch and its sequels in the Last Brigade Universe. Thus, at age 60, his career in fiction had just begun. Still living in West Tennessee with his wife of 42 years and 7 dogs, three of which are Search and Rescue certified police dogs, life has turned out better than he could ever have dreamed. Yet Bill never forgets that it is you, his readers, who make this possible. There is a covenant between writer and reader that is always uppermost in his mind. Readers who spend their time and money to read an author's works, deserve the best that author has to offer, and he never forgets that. Bill is proud to be a member of the Science Fiction Writers of America, the Society For Military History and the Alliance of Independent Authors.
