A After a successful career as a Federal Employee that included over twenty years in safety and occupational health I started writing part-time. My published work includes the peer-reviewed book Basic Safety Adminstration - Handbook for the New Safety Specialist in its second second edition. I also authored two editions of the peer-reviewed chapter Safety Training and Documentation Principles published in the bestselling Safety Professional Handbook and the Safety Professional Handbook Management Applications, both edited by Joel Haight, Ph.D., CSP. I co-authored the peer-reviewed chapter Safety Training with Christine Fiori, Ph.D., PE, published in the bestselling Construction Safety Management and Engineering, second edition edited by Darryl C. Hill, Ph.D., CSP. The American Society of Safety Professionals traditionally published my book and chapters.
I self-published another eleven books using Kindle Direct Publishing. Seven of these books are available in paperback and Kindle formats. Four of those books are available only in Kindle format. I have authored over fifty articles in various publications on safety and occupational health and project management. I have earned several writing awards for my non-fiction work and one for my fiction work. I have self-published two novels, A Walk Among the Dead and my most recent Mystery at Devil’s Elbow.
I am an Emeritus Professional Member of the American Society of Safety Professionals. I was selected as the Safety Professional of the Year for the Northern Virginia Chapter of this Society. I am also a member of the Non-Fiction Writers Association. I held the Certified Safety Professional (CSP) designation for ten years. I also earned master's degrees from National-Louis University and Webster University.
