I began writing poetry and short stories at twelve years of age, marketing my first 100-page science fiction novella, "The Parabolic Curve" at the age of fifteen. During undergraduate studies, I minored in Comparative World Literature and continued writing short stories and poetry as member of the former Park College (now Park University) Writers' Club. Over the years, I have received numerous awards for individual poems as well as poetry collections, with over sixty refereed professional publications. After retiring from medical practice, I published two multi-award-winning educational books describing a unified neurobiological theory of language acquisition and learning. Since then, I have authored non-fiction and fiction works in a variety of genres under a number of different pen names, and recently delved into screenwriting. 

In 2008, I created a small, independent, traditional-style publishing house, Savant Books and Publications. dedicated to producing previously unpublished literary works of enduring value with a twist that expand and transform English readers' point-of-view throughout the world. In 2021, Savant Books and Publications was sold to K. Simmons Productions/KS Media Group Inc in December 2021, expanding its publishing venues to add manga, animation and cinema to its outstanding collection printed, digital and audiobooks.
