Bio
I am a retired submarine officer, deep sea diver, polar explorer, scientist, and general over-all adventurer. I have nine published books, five by commercial publishers and the four latest through my own imprint, Starman Press. I write about what I know (which is pretty eclectic), and my fiction is influenced by my adventurous life.
