When danger converges with death, only the strong will volunteer

Background Information

Although educated in Chemistry, my true interests are history and literature (hey, something has to pay the bills until I hit the big one!), especially the prototypes - the first of their kind - like the Hunley. Looking at some other mysteroius twists in history.Literature is in my background. Ivan Goncharov (Oblomov, et. al.) is a distant relative. Other interesting lines include Aleksandr Baranov (last Russian governor of Alaska), the Jegello Dynasty of Lithuania and Poland, and Genghis Khan (now there's a combination of backgrounds, eh?).Born of Latvian parents, I grew up in central New York hearing stories of the old country and the relatives that I knew only through photographs. I spent years studying the great Latvian and Russian writers, and my writing style reflects this blend of American and European roots. I have also studied American, Latvian, and European histories, and spent countless hours researching my personal geneology. I have travelled to the idyllic land of the stories I had heard so many times, and finally found where I could truly call home. I have never felt more comfortable in a city as I did in Riga, especially Old Town. In the tradition of my nomadic ancestors, my search was complete when I roamed the city streets of Riga, and said, "I am home". The stories of my parents along with my travels have sparked the completion of Telmenu Saimnieks, and the beginnings of two other stories of Telmeni and her family. Work is progressing, and soon the completed trilogy of Telmeni's family will be in print.

Birth Place
Seneca Falls, NY USA

Convergence of Valor is also available overseas. Buy two and pass on one to a friend! The story is about the crew of the Civil War submarine the HL Hunley. Next on deck - a story about 1898 and the Maine or the second part of the Telmeni trilogy or a SciFi adventure - Oh, Egnaro!

Additional Information

Convergence is upon us. Visit the real Hunley in Charleston - she conceals the roots of the fabulous story detailed in Convergence. Check links for information about the Hunley. Discussion in Richmond VA and Charleston, SC! See the events listing. Ask your brick and mortar to stock it! Telmenu Saimnieks is my first book of a planned three. The first chapter is posted on the linked website for your reading pleasure. If you like what you see, the book can be ordered from the on-line booksellers listed, or directly from the publisher - also linked! Would love to hear from you and I would love to hear your opinions of the story! Log onto Amazon or Barnes and Noble websites and record your opinions under reader comments! Check out the stories posted in this web site. If you like the Egnarian Chronicles, then I can brush it off and make it happen. Let me know!
