About Ron

image58

In addition to his writing, Ron is an avid outdoors man who has traveled extensively across the Pacific to Nepal, New Zealand and other locations to hike and climb. His two month-long stays in the Himalayas have deeply influenced his views of the world and the awesome beauty it holds. Everest and the people of the mountains in particular. 


Out of this experience was born "THE LION OF KHUM JUNG", a novel set in the Himalayas, that was a finalist in the Syracuse Downtown Writer's Book of the Year Awards in 2014 and is now available in audiobook format. It has also earned a 5-star review by Reader’s Favorites.


Ronald's newest release is STARTING OVER (Creativia), which takes up Janet's story in LOVING NEIL (Creativia) and is available on Amazon Kindle and paperback.


Currently, Ronald is working on a three book series that picks up where he left off with the LION OF KHUM JUNG. Based on the 2014 Annapurna Circuit disaster, and two other catastrophes: the deadly monsoon in the Sindhupalchowk district and the Ice Fall avalanche on Everest, it recounts some of the events that went down. The first book of this series, "On My Way to You", is nearing completion and will be available on Amazon, and in book stores by the end of the year, so stay tuned for updates.


In everyday life, Ron resides in Central New York. In his spare time, he dabbles in photography. For a taste of what his camera offers, take a look at his Travels & Photography page. You can visit his Facebook page for the full catalog, and for a small fee you can purchase a download. Ron also works with the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation in Canada to raise money for the Sherpa children of Nepal’s Himalayas.
