Gene writes to entertain, he’s been writing for the last half of his life. He has lived and farmed in Lake County for nearly fifty years. His service in the Navy during World War II, and his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Michigan, along with many occupations and several professions during his eight decades of life, were only prologues for what life had to teach him.
Gene has written fifteen full-length novels and several collections of fiction and non-fiction. His writing covers a wide range of subjects from science fiction, fantasy, children’s stories and several histories, including the Civil War and Lake County, California. Gene is a published columnist of a weekly newspaper column in Lake and Mendocino County newspapers in print and online. The weekly columns cover a wide range of subjects, from people and animals he has met through the years.
When asked, why do you write?’ Gene’s reply is; “because I must. Writing is like breathing. Each day my writing makes me glad to be alive. Besides, seeing my stories in print and knowing people enjoy them, is for me, like having Apple Pie…and I love Apple Pie.”
