He’s had one fantasy novel, Dragon Fate, published, with the sequel, Dragon Blade, due out in 2012.

His work experiences include such diverse occupations as automotive mechanic, cowboy, photographer, psychiatric tech, paralegal assistant, massage therapist, bouncer, and medical billing clerk. He studied martial arts for over 30 years. He’s been a soldier and an emergency medical technician, and he served as the chief of a volunteer ambulance squad. He was a diamond courier for a while, and later owned a working kennel where he trained dogs for law enforcement as well as personal protection, and most recently, he’s trained one service dog, for himself. He has wide-ranging interests and hobbies, including, but not limited to, history, archery, paleontology, cooking, RPGs (the games, not the weapons) and making jewelry.
