Meet the Author

It took me three years to write this book, after many interviews and stories; I tries to give everyone outside of Dallas, Texas a feel of how we live. I lived in The Oaks off and on between 2002 and 2009, with relatives and on my own and I still to this day I have ties to people who still ran in and out of The Oaks.. over the years so many uneventful things happen and I want to share what out part of the world went thru. I hope you like it....
