About the Author:

I was born in Camden, Ark. in 1958. On one side the grandson of a railroad conducter and on the other,the grandson of a farmer and son of a timber man and truck driver. I grew up hunting, riding horses, fishing, and listening to stories passed down through the family about the old days. My favorites were of the old west and the civil war. As early as elementary school I read everything I could find on these subjects. Through the years I have collected saddles and weapons from those time periods. After I finished school I served in the millitary, worked many years in the timber business, worked as a carpenter, and a horse trader. I am a family man with a wife and four daughters, and three grandchildren. Luckily I was able to raise them on a small farm. I'm proud to say my daughters would rather be tending to the horses than in a shopping mall shopping for shoes. Through the years I've enjoyed many hobbies. Deer hunting, bass fishing, dirt track racing, riding horses, shooting my old pistols, wood working, and oil painting, which I'm not very good at. My writing started out as a hobby that I enjoyed very much, but hope to make a full time venture. Hopefully there will be several more books out very soon. When I write about sleeping on the ground, or hours in the saddle, branding a calf, or gelding a horse, I've done it. When I write about hog killing time, or raising a crop, or skinning and butchering meat, I've done that too. Knowing this, I hope, will make my books more enjoyable to my readers.
