I was born and raised in southwestern Ohio near the Kentucky and Indiana borders, then went to college at Ohio University in the southeastern Appalachian region of the state near West Virginia.
I graduated with a dual major in communication (journalism focus) and health education (psychology focus) with a minor in pre-law.
Ohio U. is home to the respected Scripps College of Communication and E.W. Scripps School of Journalism.
I also completed two graduate-level courses in guidance counseling theory and method at Ohio U.'s College of Education, School of Applied Behavioral Sciences and Educational Leadership.
I experienced orientation and training with Army Special Forces (special operations intelligence focus) as an Army officer trainee in college.
At the end of my undergraduate education at Ohio University, I moved to the beautiful American Southwest where I applied my education, continual training and and ongoing experience to related professional fields such as health care, journalism and special research areas.
I wrote my first novel "Mission Into Light" and the sequel "Light’s Hand" in the 1990s and the novels were published in 2001.
