Time Is, To the Rim and Beyond

The Paris of 1889 was overflowing with people of fame, import and creation. These are the people of 1889, Paris and the Universal Exposition, the exciting new Kane and Wyatt adventure from Mike Gotwalt. How many do you recognize? Can you guess which one is much more than history remembers? 


My newest book, 1889,Paris and the Universal Exposition is based  

on the detective genre. My first exposure to reading detective stories was Sherlock Holmes. This book harkens back to those days and introduces photographer, Eustace Wyatt and his journalist friend, Lloyd Kane in the year of 1889 in the world's greatest city, Paris. Join them in adventure, discovery and intrigue and meet some old friends, even Sherlock Holmes.

I've come to enjoy Eustace Wyatt, being a photojournalist myself, back in the day. So much so that two other Wyatt/Kane adventures are underway. Look for 1929, soon.

I've been a fan of classic science fiction for over 50 years. Growing up, my favorite authors were Heinlein, Clarke and Asimov because they explored the reality of the future. Either it's going to be a continuation of our failed past or an opportunity to move beyond the bounds of Earth to a new era of exploration and discovery. The theme that drives all my books is 

imagination, something we seem to have lost that we once had and hopefully will regain again.

The Kosmos Trilogy deals with the reality that we're not alone in the Universe. 

I write from Vero Beach, Florida. My wife Nancy and I retired here from south central 

Pennsylvania in 2016. We both worked for the US Navy, as civilians, and then for SAIC/Leidos as consultants. When I started out, I was a professional photographer working in architecture and sports photography. I worked auto races around the world with photos appearing in major dailies. I loved Grand Prix racing and photographed that for years, see Indian River Poster Company for a selection of photos for sale. Nancy and I, and son Nicholas restored a country church into our home, after Nancy and I were married there. You'll note photos and vintage posters in my books, that's from my love of both.
