He finished medical school at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago way back in the 1970’s and did his surgical residency at Bethesda Naval Hospital. After 14 years on active duty that included overseas duty with the Seabees, time on large gray boats and a tour with the Marines during the First Gulf War, he went into private practice near Phoenix.
He is part of that dying breed of dinosaurs, the solo general surgeon. He also is a writer of science fiction and fantasy novels.
His independently published works include the YA novel Queen Mab Courtesy, and his military science fiction novel That Which Is Human. His nonfiction memoir, Dancing in the Operating Room, is a glimpse into the life and training of a Trauma Surgeon. Glowgems for Profit and Thieves Profit are parts of a continuing series of stand-alone novels about Zach Mbele, former Republic of Mars commando and captain of the fast freighter, Profit. They and his latest work, Platinum Magic, his first foray into the world of fantasy, are published by Brick Cave Media. Platinum Magic represents the start of an exciting new series set in a surprising modern world, like our own, only different.
