Update: King of Crystal Mountain is under editing and preparation for publication. Please read the updated version of the sample in the free samples tab above. Email me to let me know what you think, please.


Welcome to my website and thank you for dropping by. Take off your shoes, stay a while. Make yourself at home. 

Now that you have seen my mugshot, please check out the other pages through the buttons at the top and the links on the side. My website will change periodically.


New pages have been added: Free Samples of my books, stories, and poetry.

Click on the "Sample" button and then select the story you wish to read a sample. Please feel free to send me your comments, critiques, and suggestions. I welcome all comments.




On the Works In Progress (WIP), I have listed some of the writings I am currently working on while sending query letters out to literary agents on the novels I have completed. Please cruise around my site and check it out.




Listed on the Books page are works that are published either in books or online. My first book published by PublishAmerica was a lesson in itself. Lessons come in all sizes and places and along this journey of learning the craft, I read about how many successful authors learned what to do as well as what NOT to do along this journey. PublishAmerica is one thing NEVER to do. Fortunately, it was only a book of short stories and poetry that they sunk their claws into and I now have all rights back to that work, which is now in the stages of rewrite. However, I have several of them in storage needing a home. If you are interested, email me and we can discuss the details.




For a sneak peak at the real me, and a view of my childhood mansion nestled in the Rock Mountains, click on over there. I was a real pistol back in those days.




For now, because I am in limbo which means my address is actually not mine to give out in Cyber Land, my email account is the only source or contact I can list on my website. So, email me if you have any questions, suggestions, or just want to chat a bit.
