D.M. Is a native Arizonan living in Scottsdale.
Traveling has inspired several of his books throughout the years, including historical fiction, especially with a mystery thrown in.

Sue Lee Mysteries started after visiting an antique shop in Honolulu with the purchase of a vintage World War Two recruitment poster for women to serve. It was haunting knowing all the possibilities open for a woman during those perilous times. 
These thoughts were set aside until the rental of a vacation houseboat in Sausalito California that was decorated in Japanese art and artifacts, including a fat happy Buddha statue on the outside deck that became Uncle Yoshi in the Sue Lee Mystery series.
