What made you decide to write and publish your first book?
I studied chemical engineering at the University of Rhode Island and later received a position as a research scientist at THE SUBMARINE BASE IN GROTON, CONNECTICUT where I was a member of a team of engineers that worked on adjoining projects with NASA. During these PROJECTS and MY LIFE EXPERINCES I realized that I had developed a FICTIONAL imagination.
How would you describe your books to first time readers?
My books are fictional with historical and scientific backgrounds. I believe there is a great amount of truth in fiction. I spend months researching the material in my books. My books take the reader through and educational experience and down a path of mystery with very unusual endings.

My Fictional works target all adults who enjoy fiction and my children BOOKS TARGET 6 to 9 CHILDREN. MY CHIENESE FORTUNE COOKIE is written in Engish and Chinese.
What unexpected or surprising thing did you learn during the process of writing and publishing?
FINDING A PUBLISHER WAS VERY DIFFICULT. i JUST ENJOYED WRITING AND MOVED FORWARD BY SELF PUBLISHING. MY WORK FINALLY REACHED THE EYES OF A PUBLISHING COMPANY.
If you could, what advice would you give to your past self before embarking on this journey?
“PERSISTANCE IS THE MOTHER OF SUCCESS.” Pursue your dream and never look back remembering to eliminate the word Failure from your vocabulary considering them as learning exercises.
How many people would you ideally like to reach with your books?
If all goes well, I will eventually have my books translated in many languages and go on to audio books. At present, I have written film treatments on several of my books and will be presenting them to movie production companies. 10 of my books have a main character that is a CIA agent and is being sent on government missions. The stories will make for a great movie or television series.
What has been the biggest challenge and frustration during the process to date?
Never had any regrets just joy in writing. Those that have read my books wrote me very encouraging and flattering testimonials.
What’s your biggest strengths when it comes to book a) writing, b) publishing and c) marketing?
When it comes to writing I have nver witnessed a writer’s block. Self publishing was easy. Getting published was a challenge. My inperson marketing at book signings went great.
What’s your biggest weakness when it comes to book a) writing, b) publishing and c) marketing?
Weakness in writing is editing-weakness in publishing name recognition- my marketing is very poor.
When do you think you will write your next book?
I am in the process of writing my 17th book at this time.
Are you self published or did you use a hybrid publisher, or a traditional publisher?
Presently I have most of my books self-published but have a contract for one with a national publishing company in Boston “Branden Publishing Company” they want me to sign up with additional books.
