Determined to serve his
country and contribute to its security, D. Arthur Gusner,
at the young age of sixteen, “borrowed” his brother
Jack’s draft card and joined the United States Army.
After three years of honorable service he then sought a
formal education at California State Polytechnic
University in San Luis Obispo where he earned degrees in
chemistry and physics.
His subsequent career as a
physicist for the United States Navy, where he
specialized in submarine warfare, inspired him to design
and develop the world’s first successful submarine
weapons systems integrated performance analysis
At the end of the cold war
he retired from the field of submarine warfare. He
subsequently turned his attention to marine research and
exploration, where he has focused on the search for and
recovery of historical shipwrecks.
Author of a high adventure
and military science fiction series, his extensive
experience and submarine warfare background influenced
his high adventure books Guardian Force, Earth
Guardian, and Guardian Probe.
D. Arthur Gusner and his
yellow Labrador guide dog, Limo, currently live on
California's Central Coast.
