One of the things I hate most is writing about myself. I have no real secrets. I’ve been married to the same woman for forty-five years, have two daughters, and one grandson whom we dote upon. I have no special genre. I write what I feel like writing, mostly adventure in the tween niche. I guess I’ve never really grown up.
I have five books published on Create Space and Kindle Direct Publishing: Frisky Fairy Tales I and II. The Boys of Chattanooga, Virtual Christmas, and Coyote. Frisky Fairy Tales I and II are satires of the old fairy tales and are strictly for fun. The Boys of Chattanooga is a novel concerning the most miraculous charge made during the Civil War and the seige and three day battle for Chattanooga. Virtual Christmas is a modern retelling of A Christmas Carol. Coyote is an adventure story set in the Nevada Desert. See, I told you I didn’t like to write about myself.
I was born and raised in Evansville, Indiana. Left home in ’64 for the army, met my wife at Fort Devens, Mass. and was assigned to Germany. I mustered out in ’69, graduated from Fitchburg State Teachers College in ’72. My wife and I taught for 23 years in Las Vegas, Nevada. Teaching was and is a profession I truly love. All is well with us in Reno, Nevada. Wish our eldest daughter lived closer though Boston (where she lives) is my favorite town. My wife and I are now retired and live in Reno, Nevada near our second daughter Kelly and grandson Carrick.
