Born and raised in Sanford, Maine, Guy is the eldest of two sons. Guy's father was a high school history teacher and sports coach, and his mother was a home-maker. His mother later went on to write numerous history articles, a book of poetry, and a self published book entitled, Parenting Myself. Guy's brother Adam has been awarded the Bronze Star for his service in Afghanistan and is currently a candidate for governor of Maine.
While studying history in college, Guy realized a passion for screenwriting and a desire to become a filmmaker. He worked as a cameraman at a television studio in Bangor, Maine. He went on a student exchange to study film production at California State University at Fresno and he took various writing courses, including an intensive screenwriting course from Hollywood script guru Syd Field at the International Film and Television Workshops in Rockport, Maine. By the time he graduated from the University of Maine with a Bachelors degree in history, Guy had completed his first screenplay entitled, The Magic of aLifetime.
In the 1990s, Guy decided to pack his bags and migrate south to Florida. Having family in the Sunshine State, he thought it would be a great place to write and work on his screenplays. Soon after, The Magic of a Lifetime was in consideration by Miramax Studios and had secured letters of intent from actors such as Burgess Meredith (Mickey from Rocky), Sherman Hemsley (television’s George Jefferson), Brigitte Nielsen (Red Sonja, Beverly Hills Cop II and Rocky IV) and director Brian G. Hutton (High Road to China, Where Eagles Dare).
While earning his Masters degree in history from the University of South Florida, Guy went on to write more screenplays and short stories, including a spec script of a G.I. Joe movie, and scripts entitled, The Paper Trail, The Widowmaker, and Tried and True, which was pitched to several studios.
Guy’s love of history inspired him to begin researching and writing his first novel. The result is Long Live the King: Book One of the Charlemagne Saga, a suspense-filled novel and the first of an on-going series. The series will weave together all the passions of Guy’s life: history, suspense, action, adventure, travel, politics, and even religion.
Today, Guy spends his summers at his home in Maine, and enjoys the sunshine the rest of the year at his Florida residence. He is an active member of International Thriller Writers (ITW) and Historical Writers of America (HWA).
