Experience world history like you never have before. Discover an alternate version as seen through the eyes of an extraterrestrial, an entity that has existed some 40,000 years already and holds the key to mankind’s fate. Discover Before it Began.

About the Author


I wrote my first book when I was in the fifth grade. It wasn’t until the age of 19 that the interest again struck me, beginning the laborious task of hashing out a novel and several short stories on an antiquated typewriter. I then took a break from it all and at the age of 54, I returned to my writing, picking up exactly where I had left off – though this time with a computer!

Now, I write part-time and edit full-time. I have rewritten all my short stories, which were drawn up in my early twenties. I have combined four of them into a short novel, The Man Who Carried Guilt, which introduces two of the characters in my novella titled Beyond Imagination. Two of the short stories I left standing alone, and the final one I elaborated upon as to be the first chapter of my latest endeavor, Before it Began — the primary book in my Neuphobes Series. Subsequently, Whence They Came follows this new release and then its accompanying novella.

I have forever lived on Long Island with my wonderful wife and three great children. When not attending family matters, or the family dog, Toby, writing consumes most all of my free time. Not a day passes where I am not at my keyboard, plunking down plot or editing content. It is a life for which I am grateful. Family, faith, and the written word; what better an arrangement could anyone ever desire!

  1. Ooohhh…this really sounds very, very interesting. I always like altnernate versions of things, so…this is one I might check out. And it’s sci-fi (without CGI 😂😂😂) so that is a reason for me to be interested in it as well 😊
