Bio: I'm a native Eastern Shoreman. My family has been wading around the marshy creeks and rivers of the Chesapeake Bay for generations. I served in the U.S. Navy and from behind a number of bars. As a bartender, not a convict. I appraise residential real estate. My writing has been published in a number of regional and national magazines. I wrote a local newspaper column for a couple years, and contributed to the Kent Island Heritage Society newsletter and oral history program for a decade. I won the Lucille Fletcher Playwriting Award once, and my nonfiction books Remembering Kent Island - Stories From the Chesapeake and A History of the Kent Island Volunteer Fire Department are available from The History Press, online, and in various retail outlets. My first novel, Bloody Point, 1976 was published in 2015.
