After serving just over 20 years in the Air Force, I made the ultimate job switch: to farmer and author. It was a drastic change, not to mention a drastic pay cut! I’ve been writing 25+ years and have been published in a variety of media: book, newspaper, photography, and magazine. I love to write, it seems to be a passion I can’t ever seem to satisfy.
I’ve been publishing a series of books in the Dragonslayers Saga. The first book, Project: Dragonslayers is an MWSA award winning novel about an unlikely Special Forces team who are thrown headlong into the world of counterterrorism. The second book, Dragonslayers: Mind Games continues the saga where the team enters the twisted world of al-Qaeda. They must find the source of a mystery explosive, or risk losing more innocent civilians to attacks. This book was selected for the MWSA summer 2011 reading list. Third book in the series: Dragonslayers: Battle Rhythm, has just been released. This time it’s Yemen, and the team finds out they’re not invincible.
Also I've expanded my work in other genres. Out now is the best-selling contemporary romance, Cowboys and Olympians. You’ll meet and fall in love with Leo Richards, a champion reining horse trainer as he tries to convince himself that he can love again after his wife and unborn child were killed in a fiery car crash. He falls for Katie Shulman, a rich, stubborn woman who just doesn’t like cowboys.
A supernatural thriller titled The Hall is complete and in editing stage. Projected release will be 2012 sometime. You’ll meet Marcus Bishop, wealthy Memphis book publisher; his new and terrifically eccentric best friend, Prince Mongo; along with a ghost and demons that haunt the old castle Marcus buys.
Also just released, the first book in a sci-fi trilogy: Space Crazy introduces you to Dar Meltom, a half breed alien who’s had a rough life. He longs for a life in the stars, and as difficult as it is, his mother manages to give that to him. Space Junk, the second book in the “Dar’s adventures in space” series is also completed. The final book in the series, Space Available, is in the works.
Keep your eyes out, in time; you’ll have lots to read from me. Check back on my page to see if there's anything new. Become a Fan of Dragonslayers on the Facebook page and you can read excerpts from all 5 books (2 currently unpublished)
As always, I appreciate feedback and book reviews. I'm a small fish in a huge ocean just trying to stay afloat. I love my writing and pour heart and soul into each work I do.
Most recently, I was given a rare distinction of placing 4th in Ron Knight's top 100 Facebook authors of 2011. He starts with 8,000 and narrows it down to 100. An honor indeed.
