I am passionate about the Native American plight, my great-grandmother is a Native Chiricahua Apache. She has passed through this life, but I say she “is” Native American Indian, because her beautiful spirit continues to live on through me and my siblings.
Raised on the south side of Chicago and the Logan Square area of Chicago, I was exposed to the turbulent lifestyle of Chicago’s adolescent gang scene. As a young teen, my family was fractured, my siblings and I were abandoned. I was forced to live on the streets. This is the time in my life when I learned the harsh, but true realities of life.
Currently, I reside in DuPage County, Illinois. I hold an ABS in Biblical Studies degree in Theology from Moody Bible Institute, and Bachelor of Arts degrees in Philosophy and English Creative Writing from Elmhurst College. My passions include being versed in numerous musical instruments and I have a deep adoration for classic literature.
Although I am a Nonfiction True-Crime author, I enjoy exploring many other genres as can be witnessed by my works. I have been featured on several radio and television broadcasts for my acumen and depth of knowledge of Herman Webster Mudgett a.k.a Dr. H. H. Holmes and Jack the Ripper. I have been studying the Ripper case for more than forty years.
When not penning a new manuscript, blog or making an appearance on a television or radio show, I enjoy riding my Harley Davidson motorcycle through the country back roads. I am an active member of the American Legion/Legion Riders Post 1941 — LaGrange, Illinois.
