GREEN CARD SOLDIER
...an historic adventure novel
A heart-wrenching story...
...that marches through the exploits of a naïve Bosnian teen who joins the U.S. Army to earn his American citizenship while coming to grips with the upheavals in his homeland. The tale is told by a cynical, yet self-deprecating, war correspondent who, over the years, has reported on similar pursuits in bizarre locations around the globe.

The book’s theme is as fundamental as the core values of any American Soldier: Life can become richer and everyone become stronger when we look beyond stereotypes and appreciate each other for the unique individuals we are.

Green Card Soldier moments...
As I come across intriging and inspiring photos of American service members engaged in the naturalization experience, I will post them here as encouragement for other Green Card Soldiers seeking information about becoming a U.S. citizen.
Second novel goes to press
This novel – Munich Spring – is about a group of everyday free thinkers in Germany during the tumultuous time that was the late 1980s European upheaval. It’s told by Heath Winslow – a cynical, self-deprecating freelance journalist – who seeks to boost awareness of societal swings while buttressing himself against the push by many to remain steadfast.
Set in Bavaria, the novel recounts the dynamic interactions between characters as they attempt to deal with the political, social, and economic shifts sweeping Europe. The adventure culminates in the fall of the Berlin Wall and far-reaching changes impacting the continent.
