I am the author of two nonfiction books, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice and The Clapper Memo, as well as one crime-fiction novel, The National Bet, and a screenplay, Apply Online.
A native of Enid, Oklahoma, I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in journalism in 1984. During the next two decades, I served stints as an Air Force public affairs officer, a political campaign manager, a technology sales consultant and a public relations professional.
My first nonfiction book, Three Days In August (October 2011), chronicles the life story and wrongful conviction of Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, a highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran.
My second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo (May 2013), offers irrefutable evidence of an unconventional war being waged by polygraph loyalists against all challengers to their century-old credibility assessment technology. Best described as a “turf war,” this conflict has been raging silently for 40 years, shows no signs of easing, and impacts Americans around the world. Among those involved in the turf war is Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., the nation’s top intelligence officials.
In my first crime-fiction novel, The National Bet (November 2014), FBI Special Agent “Joe-L” Wilson leads the investigation into the mysterious deaths of thousands of Americans during the Fourth of July weekend. The biggest challenge of his law enforcement career, the investigation becomes personal after he realizes he shares one thing in common with those who died: The National Bet.
My first completed screenplay, Apply Online, follows this storyline:
Dumped by his girlfriend less than 24 hours after he buys airlines tickets to take her on an around-the-world adventure that would end with a marriage proposal, a wealthy businessman decides against letting the tickets go to waste and invites women with the same name as his ex to Apply Online to become his travel companion.
