Welcome to my site dedicated to my writings. Here for your enjoyment, you'll find information, background and access to my novels, novellas, and short stories.
I'm semi-retired and currently pastor and teach at a small church located in Orange County, CA. I served over 35 years in both the active duty Air Force and Air National Guard, working in Law Enforcement and Information Technology. I also worked for a number of years in Information Technology at two post-production film companies in Hollywood.
I've enjoyed writing and creating short stories over the years. My first major project was the lighthearted Science Fiction novella called “The Legend of the Salad Traveler.” Other works soon followed, including his Fallen and Elect series based on my interests in the unique mysteries of Supernatural Realism.
Technology and Science have made such an impact on society since the Industrial Revolution, that the more we advance, the more we find our beliefs are just as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago. With some of my writings, I hope to delve into these themes.
In addition to writing, I enjoy reading, cooking, and traveling, having visited each of the contiguous 48 states and various countries in both Southwest Asia and Europe.
The Fallen and the Elect (Select title link for supplemental information)
It's been 10 years since millions disappeared. Subsequently, angels started to appear at random funerals eulogizing the deceased. During one funeral, an angel is the cause of a fatal event investigated by a priest, nun and former seminarian. Their investigation leads to a test of each of their beliefs, and answers to questions they never anticipated.
The Fallen and the Elect: The Aurora Strain
(The work will be undergoing a re-edit and slight revision.)
In the sequel on to “The Fallen and the Elect”, the angels return after ceasing to give their eulogies at funerals. The survivor of the fatal visitation in Los Angeles has the ability to communicate with angels. Father Hernandez, Sister Justine, and Michael Saunders - a former seminarian, who all first investigated the mysterious events in "The Fallen and the Elect", resist those who try to silence what they’ve learned as their investigation intensifies. See what they continue to uncover and how their lives continue to change. The book is available as an e-book and hard print.

This is the lighthearted story of a salad that weighs 5.5 ounces, and it decides to go on vacation; a man unexpectedly ends up in the shower and tells you he knows how to find it. Just make sure you keep enough rocks in your pocket. Written in homage to “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, this is a story of epic proportions - well not epic, but whimsical proportions.
A teenager from Africa with the ability to track spirit possessed creatures is aided by a self-exiled religious recluse with the unique ability to read souls. The two are brought together and journey to a mysterious small town in Northern California searching for a daimon that's entered the world causing local havoc. If not successful, the ramifications are greater than both initially realize. (Planning for a small rewrite)
