Overview

Nestled near a quiet river in Mexico is the little village of Esperanza. It’s youth moving away and nothing to offer new residents except for them to share in the poverty that grips the region. With the violence expanding in the border towns a new business sets its sights on Esperanza. Is this the miracle the town needs or is it something else.
As a powerful Drug Lord brings his business to the little village it seems destine to slide into a private hell for its residents. Is there someone who can stand up to them? Will someone save the little town? When all that’s left is desperation they only have one hope and he’s one man that doesn’t fit. Maybe it was meant to be. It seems only the people who live in Esperanza know. Desperate Hope

Storyteller!

I'm an old west Texas boy. I grew up in Big Spring, Texas. I have three children, and one of them still lives in Big Spring. I now make my home in south Texas. I've written 19 novels and novellas and will continue to write as long as there is a story to tell.
I try to write things that young people can read. I'm a strong believer that you don't have to use descriptive sex or off-color language to tell a story. I should caution you though that in an action story, there is always some violence.
I am an avid musician and a United States Army Viet Nam Veteran. I write several different genres and probably always will. My favorite is Action/Adventure or Westerns.
My work was published by another company and is now marketed by VGR. I also can be found at several web sites.
I never wanted to be a great author or counted as one of the really intelligent people of our time. All I've ever strived for is to entertain. I write stories about people who struggle to be who they are. It may sound strange, coming from a fiction author, but I try to make my characters believable.
It is an honor that you're interested in my work. A writer or a musician is nothing without someone to share their creations. Thank you for being that person. You may also find a song or two that I've written on You tube. Please join me on Facebook with the rest of my author friends.
I enjoy comments and having my readers drop me a line, so when you run across my sites or find me on Facebook, feel free to write me. It might take a day or two to get back to you, but I will.
