I was born six months before man landed on the moon. I was blessed to grow up in the country, where my family lived largely off the land. When I wasn’t fishing, exploring the woods, or weeding the garden, I devoured comic books like Two-Gun Kid and The Rawhide Kid before moving on to the exciting adventure stories of Jack London and Louis L’Amour. Our black-and-white TV got three channels, though you could lose one and pick up another if you went outside and messed with the antenna. On its grainy screen, we watched Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and movies starring John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. Now a husband and father, I love exploring the West and reading history and fiction alike. My favorite authors are Louis L’Amour, Elmore Leonard, C.J. Petit, and R.O. Lane. As a writer, I hope to entertain you with fun stories of the old West. My good guys are good, my bad guys are bad, and you’ll always find a touch of romance to sweeten the grit.
