A Little About Me and My Previous Lives

I grew up in the South at a time when the country was split on its opinions of a deeply unpopular war. In 1962 I entered the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I earned degrees in chemistry and medicine.

After completing my surgery internship at the University of Miami School of Medicine, I joined the Army under the Berry Plan and was deployed to Vietnam in 1971. Subsequently, I completed surgical residencies at University of Miami, Louisiana State University, and Medical University of South Carolina.

I served on the faculty at Indiana University School of Medicine and was chief of thoracic and cardiovascular surgery at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida for many years.

I began writing during my residencies and have continued since that time.

My Bibliography

I’ve produced a variety of fiction and nonfiction novels that draw upon my experience in the military and my experience as a physician. Additionally, I’ve written a number of scientific articles published in multiple medical journals. My works include the following:
