Who Am I?

I’m a published author, nature and landscape photographer, and IT professional.

Tenth Page published my first science fiction novel, MXX: Agent Soldier, on March 12th, 2015. I’m currently writing the second novel in the series, MXX: Two Promises, as well as a horror novella. I also have a number of published short stories scattered throughout the deep expanse of the Internet, and a few samples of my writing on this website.

As for photography, I gravitate toward black and white nature and landscape imagery, and areas of desolation and neglect. I seek unique shots that are bold and high in contrast, normally taken on overcast days. Unlike my black and white photography, I don’t have a particular taste when it comes to color images. I take pictures of whatever speaks to me, or leaves me momentarily breathless and with a sense of awe.  My hope is that when you view my photography, you can feel the same emotion I felt when I took the pictures.

On a more personal note, I’m forever grateful of the service, dedication, and patriotism of the men and women who serve in the United States Armed Forces. Their bravery and service to our country, and its people, provides me the freedom and opportunity to do what I do. Because of that, I donate half of all of the profits made from my novel, art, and photography print sales to Puppies Behind Bars and Homes for our Troops.

I would like to thank everyone who views or posts on this website, and I’ll always welcome your comments and thoughts.
