I'm a retired journalist who began my career as a summer copyboy before my senior year in high school for CBS News Washington under then Vice President Theodore Koop. The summer following my high school graduation I served as a disc jockey for radio station WTCR in Asland, Kentucky that was then owned by Town and Country Network founded by Connie B. Gay. I then joined the Army and served as a military correspondent in Korea and Ft. Belvoir, Virginia. I earned a BS degree from Arizona State University and a MA degree from the University of Iowa. I also studied at the Wharton School, the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy (NIH Summer Fellow), Oxford University, the University of London, Wesleyan University and ASU"s graduate program in higher education. I served as my own attorney in federal court in an age discrimination case (Dist. of Arizona case No. 96-0063) taking it up to trial in 18 months. My news articles have appeared in several publications nationwide. I've written a self-published novel titled "The Return of John Marshall" that's available from, Borders, Barnes& Noble, Google and 25,000 book retailers nationwide. One reviewer wrote: "Above all, this is a novel of ideas, sometimes called a protest or propaganda novel--for example, Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath, Paton's Cry, the Beloved Country, and Upton Sinclair's The Jungle. The ingredients in this manuscript are handled superbly"... I'm working on a second novel.
