Biography: I was raised in Houston Texas in the sixties which, amazingly enough, is what my first book is about. I have been a restaurant manager, musician, and I spent 23 years in the U.S Navy. After retiring in 2001, I went into the automobile industry as a Service Advisor. My wife told me (after I started blogging daily motivations on Facebook) that I should write a book! So, I did. I found that I have a natural gift that I was unaware I possessed. I finished writing my second novel (a S.K. type thriller) called 'The Globe' and released a book of great short stories called 'Almost Reality.' Currently I am writing my first of a series of books featuring Bryce Mallory, a retired profiler Detective from West Palm Beach. Bryce and his partner Shamus are Irish and make sure everyone knows it! Join them as they take on the terrible and elusive serial killer 'The Spector.' Be sure to leave a review after reading one of my books. I really appreciate it and wish everyone a wonderful life!
