I gave up a promising career as an actor, abandoning a leading role in a hit show on Broadway to travel in search of adventure and excitement in the Far East. My time in the theatre and on radio gave me insight into the art of staging and scriptwriting. In the Far East, one thing leads to another.
I became a news correspondent/cameraman. For thirty years I covered the Vietnamese and Cambodian wars as well as the Indo/Pakistani conflict. I filmed student uprisings in Japan and Korea, an earthquake in Bali, floods in Pakistan and was on hand for many important political transitions. I met many world famous leaders and earned the reputation as the man who always got his story.
I went from covering news to documentary films and traveled extensively around the world shooting them.
I produced and was director of photography on a picture called "Wits End" which was filmed entirely in Singapore. The story of a journalist who drops out, gets mixed up with spies, beautiful girls and wild shootouts and all manner of mayhem. It played in the United States where it became something of a cult classic. In keeping with this somewhat dubious honor the film was renamed "The G.I. Executioner" and is on sale at video stores as a DVD.
I had an exciting episode with the infamous Two Gun Cohen. An English film producer who read about it contacted me to write a fiction screenplay about him. I was so enthused that I wrote fifty-four pages of notes but never heard from that producer again so I proceeded to turn my notes into a book. That first one turned into a second book and a third one. And that is the way the Two Gun trilogy came about.
