Author bio

Born in Europe, English is his second language, following Italian—then Latin, Pig Latin, French and assorted computer languages. He managed a series of oil company outlets; ran two of his own; became a mechanic, then truck driver, did direct sales; became a Field Engineer for main frame computers. After ten years he switched to software and worked ten more years, receiving world wide acclaim, as a System Programmer. In college he took a dislike to writing of any kind and swore never to try that again. Well, some years later, influenced by Babylon 5's creator and his own pressure to write about two traumatic events, he turned to creative writing. As of June 2021, he has shared 170 published stories with others, 5.2 million online views, and 18 books. We suppose he's one of those who just can't keep a job!
