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 The Mark of the Spider: A Black Orchid Chronicle. 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 in ebook and trade print editions, only from Amazon. Order the print book and get the ebook free. Subscribers to Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Owners Lending Library can also read the book for 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 LinkedInFacebookTwitter and Google+. I would just keep an eye on this site.
