Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I'm a retired commercial helicopter pilot with forty years in the cockpit and 12,500 hours of flight time. My latest book, 'The Sky Behind Me, a Memoir of Flying and Life' is based on my career in aviation. In 2005 I retired from flying, returned to college and earned my Bachelors in English from The Ohio State University at age 63. Now I'm a full time writer. In 2012 I won The Bailey Prize for non-fiction awarded by The Swedenborg Foundation Press. WIP--'Air-Craft & The Writing Craft, how to make your words take off,' 'Growing Up Crowded,' a family memoir and a novel, 'Waiting For Willie Pete.' Numerous articles and essays.

Enjoy the book trailer for The Sky Behind Me, a Memoir of Flying and Life. Based on my forty year career in aviation, TSBM is about a lost dream, the ravages of war, the futility of not believing in ourselves and finally the opportunity to have the dream renewed. It's a memoir filled with hope for a better tomorrow, and the opportunity to help our fellow human beings. The heart of a man can want no more than this.

Whenever I find myself sitting in front of the computer with a dumb look on my face (okay, dumber than usual) for several minutes, there aren’t many things that snap me out of it and prod me back into the writing. This morning, October 23rd, I believe I’ve found two such cures for the torpor that’s otherwise known as writer’s block. The first cure for changing my mood was a…
