Shorts (4 Tales from 3 Decades) [NOOK Book]

Overview

Decades
I hope you like these selections. The reason that I call them “Decades” is because I wrote them in three different times. I put them together for me as much as I did the reader. It shows how much I’ve changed through the years and how much I’ve progressed as a person.

Overview

Decades
I hope you like these selections. The reason that I call them “Decades” is because I wrote them in three different times. I put them together for me as much as I did the reader. It shows how much I’ve changed through the years and how much I’ve progressed as a person.
“Along the High Trail” I wrote in 2009 for someone in Colorado. They wanted a story that included the town of Silverton. I studied Silverton on the Internet and wrote a story about a traveler who passed through the town.
The second story I wrote for Readers Digest back in the early 1990’s. I was really excited about entering the story contest they were holding. After putting it together and mailing it off, it was returned to me marked “UNSOLICITED MATERIAL.” Needless to say, that was my last experience with them. “The Adventure of Willis Hornsby” has never been read by anyone until now.
The third story I wrote in the mid 1980’s. Yes, before 911 and all this talk about terrorism. Even before Clinton was the U.S. President. I saw a news item about banning biological warfare, and boom, “It Happened in Pinewood” was born.
The last of this group is a murder mystery. Read along as I try to tell you about the murder of Mavis Hawks. She was a singer that lived in my neighborhood.
There have been some minor updates, but for the most part, they are as I originally wrote them. Hope you enjoy them.

Meet the Author

Storyteller!
I'm an old West Texas boy, 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 genre 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
