He was co-author of "Eclipses," with Derek Appleby, published by Aquarian Press, 1989 and is the author of "The Void of Course Moon," published by Tara Astrological Publications, 1997. "The Sun and The Aspects" was released in 2002. He is also creator of Tara - horary astrology a computer software program for horary astrology, which is now being adopted for natal astrology.

Source Notes

LMR quotes him by email 2/2002, from his mother's memory. He notes, "My natal Sun is conjunct those of Pat White and Michael Munkasey. We discovered this fact at the Project Hindsight Conclave in Berkeley Springs a few years ago. All three of us were born around the same day but hours apart and in different towns. All three of us are astrologers interested in astrological computer software, and in a general sense, accuracy (of data etc) At Berkeley Springs we were known as the "time triplets."
