Meet the Author
I am a Choctaw Indian who was born in Stigler Oklahoma. I lived as a child growing up in the desert Southwest in and around the Casa Grande Valley in Arizona. I spent many happy hours by myself roaming the desert and mountains while learning about the animal and plant life there. The desert can be a harsh teacher for the unwary, where death can come quickly to those that are not prepared for the constant dangers that exist. One must learn how to find water and avoid sunstroke or heat exhaustion. There are rattlesnakes and Gila monsters as well as coyotes, wolves, skunks, wild hogs, scorpions and centipedes. The desert is also a beautiful place that is full of life and adventure. In the solitude one can take the time to meditate and contemplate on life and the reasons thereof. One can find the Great Spirit and seek guidance on ones life’s path in the desert. I learned much from the desert and also from the Indians of the desert country.
As an adult I have traveled over half of the states in the United States. I have worked as a field hand, ginned cotton, worked cattle, worked on a core recovery drill rig drilling for copper samples, fry cook, service station attendant, pipe line construction, welding bridges, plowed land, irrigated, foreman on two farms, played music in honkytonks, sold everything from grand pianos to grandfather clocks, taught meditation classes, and other kinds of work to numerous to mention. I also am a master boot maker and leather artist. I have been working since I was twelve years old and have been making my own way in the world since I was sixteen. I am self-educated and I like to meditate and spend time in natural surroundings. One can gain much soul growth by seeking out a quiet place to commune with the Great Spirit. I have made a lifetime study of people trying to learn what motivates them as they act out the drama of life. My two favorite pastimes are fishing and golfing -- both of which I haven’t had time for in ages. Guess how I learned to tell stories? One thing that you might keep in mind as you read my stories is that some of the things I write about may seem to be so fantastic that it must be pure fantasy -- yet sometimes the truth is more fantastic than fiction. I am currently living in Texas -- you know, that little suburb of Oklahoma just south of the Red River. Texas is the original home of tall tales and long winded people so I feel right at home here.
