I've lived in Seattle all my life, but for twenty two years have traveled the world as an airline pilot. I recently closed one chapter of my career, flying the 747-400 with Northwest Airlines, and excited to open the next chapter in 2010 on the Airbus A330 with Delta. I've raised three daughters, completed two masters’ degrees, worked with seven different airlines, have written training manuals and trained thousands of airline pilots. And now … it's time for the next chapter of my life to begin! I have plotted and crafted stories, in my mind, during my many journeys as a pilot. I have recently shifted gears from 'thinking about' these stories, to making them a reality. My first aviation thriller: Flight for Control, will be complete and with an agent in 2011. I have YA story in works: Twist of Faith. And watch out for the Darby series: Flight 69, Flight 151 and Flight 007… with many more to come. You can find me on Twitter here, and can find me on my aviation blog Flight To Success.
