Named for a city in Connecticut. I was born in Gilroy, California, the Garlic capital of the United States. Served 3 years in the US Navy as a Gunner’s Mate MIssile. I have written numerous texts with an emphasis on gold mining and prospecting, as well as inspirational and self help literature. 

My current project It’s In Los Angeles was inspired by The Yamashita Treasure in the Philippines and The Thrill of the Chase by Forrest Fenn. Any treasure seeker would do well to include that title in their library, but I would greatly appreciate you adding IILA to your inventory as well. Thanks for your interest in my books and your time while visiting IILABook.com…..
