                                                                       A Little About Me

Many, many moons ago, I was born in Parkersburg, West Virginia, because I wanted to be close to my mother.

While I was still a child, my dad sold his West Virginia cattle farm and moved us to another farm he purchased in southeastern Ohio.

After growing very hungry, I found my folks again a couple of years later. (By the way, this is a story I often told that routinely made my late mother very angry, because she feared people might actually believe it.)

As a graduate of Hyles Anderson College, I have been employed in manufacturing for almost thirty years.

During this period, I worked as a freelance writer for years in many fields, such as politics and sports, and writing a regular column for the local newspaper. In addition, I also hosted a weekly radio talk show for over four years, something I truly loved.

My love of Westerns began with the reading of "Flint," a novel by famed Western author, Louis L'Amour.

In reality, my eventual Western writing career almost didn't happen.

That is because I was young and foolish, which caused me to make fun of my dad for reading those "dime store novels," words that I later had to eat.

While getting ready to go to work, Dad always had a paperback copy of Louis L'Amour in his lunch bucket.

Then I finally read one, forever proving that my dad wasn’t the stupid one in our family.

So begins the story...

Now I routinely try to write the kind of books I like to read. And I’ve discovered that other people seem to like them as well.

My books aren't exactly, "Eat, Pray, Love." They tend to be more: "Ride, Shoot, Shove."

I am a husband of over thirty years to my first and only wife, who is also my best friend in this world.  I am the father of three great kids, the father-in-law of two more, and the grandfather of a couple boys who always keep me smiling.

I am a proud member of the West Virginia Writers and Western Writers of America.

Besides my passion for writing, I am a hard-core fan of West Virginia University football and basketball.
