Author has written 44 stories for Rat Patrol, and Hogan's Heroes.
I grew up in the sixties and my dad was a WWII vet, so it's maybe no surprise that I love sixties WWII shows.
I love to read, and I deeply appreciate well-written stories that are heart-warming and have a sense of humor. I like historical references, and I am intrigued when fictional stories are tied to historical events, but I also enjoy reading stories that venture out into "what if" situations, as long as those situations have a degree of plausibility.
I don't like torture scenes at all, especially if they are gratuitous and don't advance the story line.
As a rule, I enjoy stories that stay close to the spirit and the character of the source material. Stray too far from that, and you've lost me.
As for me, I try to write the kind of stories that I like to read. If others enjoy them too, that's the icing on the cake!
Papa Bear Awards 2011 update:
I'm so proud to be the recipient of the Gold Award for most unique story for "The Unsung Hero", and a co-recipient of the Silver Award for best portrayal of a canon character for Hochstetter in "The Unsung Hero". I dedicate these awards to the late great Howard Caine, whose delightfully demented performance of Major Wolfgang Hochstetter was the inspiration for the Unsung Hero.
Papa Bear Awards 2012 update:
I'm just overwhelmed and honored that my stories have been chosen for awards this year. A special thank you goes to dust on the wind, who suggested the idea for "Return of the Informer".
