A Brief Biography:

My Golden Key Strategy and dozens of other books have helped hundreds of thousands of people make better competitive decisions in their everyday lives. My work is based on my award-winning English translation of Sun Tzu's The Art of War.

Prior to becoming a multiple award-winning author, I was a successful high-tech entrepreneur, as the founder and CEO of an Inc. 500 company.  Most recently I have also become a playwrite, with my stage play, We Saw His Sermon on the Mount, being published by Eldridge, the leading publisher of Christian plays and musicals.

After a quick rise in corporate sales and marketing management first at Bic Pen and then at Tandy Corporation, I started FourGen Software in the 1980s. As its award-winning CEO, I led FourGen for over fourteen years of growth to become one of America's Inc. 500 fastest growing companies in America. We sold flexible order entry applications to large corporations.

After selling FourGen in 1997, I was invited to speak on the competitive strategies of Sun Tzu to organizations around the world. Several business magazine wrote about my use of Sun Tzu in I was building my company and selling our products. In working with my corporate clients and other organizations, I authored a number of books using Sun Tzu's concepts in modern competition. Ten of my books have won award-recognition in seven different non-fiction categories, including the Ben Franklin Award for the Best Self-Help Book for the Golden Key to Strategy. my original English translation of Sun Tzu's The Art of War is the only award-winning English translation of Sun Tzu.  My books led to audios, videos, and online training site certifying people's understanding of Sun Tzu's strategy.

The Science of Strategy Institute: I am the founder of the Science of Strategy Institute, a professional organization dedicated to training people in Sun Tzu's Golden Key Strategy. Visit the Institute's site for a daily lesson in Golden Key Strategy. The Institute focuses on the concept of "winning without conflict," that is making productive instead of destructive competitive decisions. Professional strategy trainers all over the world use the Institute's lessons and exercises to teach traditional strategic methods. Because of my work, hundreds of thousands of people use the secrets of productive rather than destructive competition every day both in their professional and personal lives.

Jesus's Words: For over 15 years, I have also been working on translating Christ's words from the original Greek of the Gospels to reveal what is lost in English translation. So far, I have spent bout 10,000 hourse studying and analyzing the Greek of Jesus's words.  Visit ChristWords.com to see my work in that area. You can read today's verse or see the actual Greek of a particular verse that interests you. 

This work is the basis for my new focus, writing novels and plays that recreate the world in which Jesus. This world is seen through the eyes of people who saw him teach.
