About the Author

I've been writing for several years. I've completed eleven feature length screenplays one of which has been optioned by Spectacle Entertainment and three that are with various independent producers.

I've written and published four science fiction novels titled "The Encounter", "Contact", "The Submarine Effect" and "The Sentinel". They are available through,, and a number of other websites. They have been distributed world wide in E-Book format through "Electronic and Database Publishing." Through book signings and special events organized by me, sales have been good.

I worked with the Austin Film Festival for a couple of years reading and judging screenplays for their screenplay competition and I belong to American Zoetrope reviewing screenplays there. I belong to, and write for, the Houston Film Industries Group supporting the film industry in Houston as well as the state of Texas.
