Duel in the Deep, my latest book, was published by Naval Institute Press in September 2023.

At War With the Wind, first published in 2008, has been reissued as a quality paperback edition from Kensington Books.

Additionally, At War With the Wind is now available as a Tantor audiobook.

I also write frequently for print and digital periodicals such as as Aviation History, Military History Quarterly, Naval History (I was its 2017 Author of the Year), Smithsonian Air & Space, Smithsonian Digital, VFW Magazine, Vietnam and World War II.

I have appeared as a commentator on the History Channel and have spoken frequently before military and civic groups such as Chicago’s Pritzger Military History Library, New York’s Intrepid Museum, and New Orleans’s National World War II Museum. Most recently, I am a commentator for the series The Bomber: Terror of WWII, from Wildbear Entertainment.

Born and raised in Massachusetts, I earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a graduate degree from Cornell University. My early career included service as a United States Navy officer and decorated Vietnam War veteran. My subsequent business career included human resources  executive positions with The New York Times Company and Dow Jones & Company.
