After an early fling in the motion picture industry and a long and successful career in academia, I retired in 2010. With my desire to play major league baseball no longer a realistic dream, I chose to fulfill my other lifelong ambition and became a writer. A member of Southwest Writers, Sisters in Crime, Western Writers of America, and the International Thriller Writers organizations, I write the Gabe McKenna mysteries for Suspense Books and maintain this blog.

My debut novel, RED GOLD won three first place awards at the 2015 New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards. It garnered the Tony Hillerman Award as the Best Fiction of 2015, and  was chosen as the Best Mystery of 2015 and the Best eBook. The sequel in the Gabe McKenna Mystery Series, GET LOST, debuted on March 8, 2016 and was chosen Best Mystery of 2016 and Best eBook of 2016 by the New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards. The third book, CUT.PRINT.KILL was published in September of 2017 and was awarded Best Action/Adventure Novel of 2018. MIDNIGHT BLUES, the 4th Gabe McKenna adventure made its debut on October 9, 2018. All titles are from Suspense Publishing and are available from Amazon HERE.

I reside in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my wife Annette and our cat Woody. I have two beautiful daughters, a grandson and granddaughter.
