Who would you say has been your biggest inspiration?

As a student of literature, my inspiration comes from the master’s of fiction, including Melville, Twain,
Fitzgerald, Hemingway and Steinbeck.


What is your all-time favorite book?

This is a hard one.  But when I first read Moby Dick in high school, I was mesmerized by the sea.  
Enough so that I eventually joined the Navy.


How long do you normally take to research your book?

I usually spend a month researching a book before I write the first sentence.  This includes subject,
setting, characters, etc.  I also do an extensive character study of my main protagonist, but I like to
leave some parts of his background a mystery to even me.  That way I can also discover through the
writing process.


What is on your Ipod now?

I don’t own an iPod.  But I do have a one-gig card on my cell phone, with about 250 songs on it,
including four complete U2 albums.


Do you have any superstitions when you write, little quirks, etc?

I always write first drafts in the morning while I listen to music on my computer.  After working for
years on military aircraft, my ears ring.  So I can’t write in silence.  I also pick my music based on the
scene I’m writing (from hard rock to classical).


If you could solve any mystery for yourself, what would it be?

Growing up in Northern Minnesota, there were a couple murders of young women that were never
solved.  That was quite disconcerting to a youngster from a small town.  Still is.


If you could talk to any person, Alive or Dead, for one hour, who would it be?

My grandfather on my German side, who died before I was born.  He spent years as an officer in the
German army during WWI, where he was gassed repeatedly.  I know almost nothing about that side of
my family before they came to America.


I love to hear stories from authors about their first published book, how did you get
it done?

My first book, FATAL NETWORK, started as a writing assignment in a short story class for my graduate
degree in writing at Northern Michigan University.  My professor asked me to continue writing, and to
make it my graduate thesis.  About a year and a half later, and 350 pages, I had written my first
novel.  But it wasn’t easy.  I was a captain in the Air Force at the time, with a large contingent of my
B52 squadron deployed overseas in six locations in support of the first Gulf War.  I found a publisher
for the book about two years after I finished my thesis.  That publisher eventually went under, but
FATAL NETWORK has now been published by three U.S. print publishers, three audio book publishers, a
Japanese edition, and it spent almost a year in the top 25 as an eBook bestseller on bn.com in the
thriller section.


What future plans can you tell us about?

I have three books I’m currently completing.  They’re essentially done (although they’re never really
done), and I’ll be breaking out to a larger publisher so my books can reach a larger audience.


When you are not writing, what do you like to do for fun?

I travel the world, hunt for big game, and shoot my guns.  Sometimes in that order.
