Can an old journalist and marketing consultant learn new tricks?

I wondered that in 2014 when I set out to try my hand at writing long-form fiction, i.e., books.

I’m still wondering today, but I’ve finished two books, one non-fiction and one fiction. It’s a start.

My latest effort is Beware the Spider, Book 2 of the Black Orchid Chronicles. It will be available in early summer 2019.

Book 1 of the Chronicles, The Mark of the Spider, was published in 2018. It’s the tale of a nature photographer who is cursed with the power to kill with his thoughts but given no control over his lethal new ability. It’s available from these fine booksellers:

Amazon (ebook and paperback) | Apple | Barnes & Noble (Nook) | Kobo Smashwords

Order the print book and get the ebook free.

HOTEL CONSTELLATION: Notes on America’s Secret War in Laos is my first book, a memoir of my time in Southeast Asia during the Viet Nam war years, 1970-1972. You can buy the paperback on Amazon (get the paperback and the ebook is free) and the ebook on Amazon, AppleBarnes & Noble, Kobo, Scribed, Smashwords and a whole lot of other places.

Another project on the boiler is entitled PSNGR, a sci-fi drama about First Contact gone sour. This one gives me goose bumps as I write it.

I find shooting close-up photos of flowers meditative, being a master gardener at Green Spring Gardens a challenge, and being grandfather of two young grandchildren absolutely wonderful.

If you have to, you can sometimes (not often) find me on FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn. I would just keep an eye on this site.
