TR Gabriel grew up in rural, small town, west central Wisconsin. Watching aircraft from nearby Ft. McCoy fly overhead got him interested in both the military and aviation. During twenty years active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps, he served as an aircraft ground support equipment technician, a Communications Officer, and a CH-53E Helicopter Pilot, primarily served on the west coast with numerous overseas deployments. He is currently with the Flight Program Training Division for a major logistics company in Louisville.
TR's start in writing began when he was prompted by his wife to accomplish one of his 'bucket list' items, writing a book. The subsequent journey has been one of hard work, a steep learning curve, and the realization of a passion for writing.
The Dogs of Warr were initially created in 1986 as comic book characters drawn in a sketchbook. The first novel, Dogs of Warr, brought those characters to life, giving them depth and dimension. Three books in now and working on the fourth. Skull & Crossbownes are two of his other sketched characters debuting in the novella Chronicles of Skull & Crossbownes: The Atlantis File.
A 'part time' author, it's a 'full-time' passion for TR with the ideas continually flowing, eventually winding up on ‘paper’. He sincerely hopes others will hop on to enjoy the ride he's taking his characters on!
