I was born in Brooklyn
and spent my summers in Mastic Beach Long Island, when it was still
paradise, and the bungalows were only occupied during the summer
months. I earned my college degree in Classical Literature with a
minor in Art History. Right after graduation, I decided I wanted to
see the world, so I joined the Marine Corps.
It is important to note,
the day I joined the Marines, I had written the first 60 pages of
"Echoes From Another World." Why didn’t I finish it then? I felt
that I didn’t have enough real-world experience to write anything
significant; who would want to listen to me? So, I followed my
other dream to be a military pilot.
I graduated from Marine
Corps OCS and then Naval Flight School. My first duty station was
in Tustin, California, and from there I deployed to Okinawa, Japan,
Korea, and sometimes flew off Navy ships. I loved it all. I had the
most excellent adventure that a young man could have, and met some
of the most intelligent and capable people in the world.
After 10 years, I left
the Corps to make my millions. Then one day, many years after I
wrote the first 60 pages of this book, I sat down on my deck,
lit-up a fine cigar, and finished the draft in two months. Several
years later, many edits later, I finally published it. The sequel
is on its way. I also have several short stories published on
Kindle Vella. My hope is that I am successful in entertaining you
and that you enjoy Echoes From Another World.
