I am the author of one romantic comedy screenplay, Apply Online; one crime-fiction novel, The National Bet; and two nonfiction books, The Clapper Memo and Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice.
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.
I completed my first screenplay, Apply Online, in March 2015. Stay tuned for details as I work to sell this romantic comedy script to Hollywood.
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.
In my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo (May 2013), I offer irrefutable evidence of an unconventional war being waged by polygraph loyalists against all challengers to their century-old credibility assessment technology. Among those involved in this “turf war” is Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., the nation’s top intelligence official.
In my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August (October 2011), I chronicled the life story and wrongful conviction of Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, a highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran.
