I was raised in Oakland, California and attended Berkeley's University of California. Several years later I worked as an ironworker and taught college-level construction courses. My early books are my “ranting books". They were written as a way to express my personal experience of the tons of hazardous dioxin and pentachlorophenol waste CalTrans illegally and dangerously stored next door to my home in Pinole, California. I’ve been told that these three books saved thousands of lives by my exposing the illegal dumping of the world’s most abused and dangerous poison.
Those books inspired me to write again; entertaining mystery novels, starting with A Poisoning in Eden and The Pinole Syndrome, followed by The Naked Trumpeter, a novel based on the Pinole crimes. I hope you'll find my novels entertaining and informative on the subjects explored.
