Ontario, California, United States
I am retired and have been writing since the late 1950s. I finally decided to "polish up" some of my stories for publication and ended up writing a totally new yarn.
I am married with two grown children and a grandson...and a dog. I have to have a dog.
My father left home at about tens years old, and died 70 years later having obtained a Master's Degree in his late 50s, retired as a college professor, and was a well-respected member of his ptofession, his community, and his church.
Mom came from a line of early settlers who were among the first to go into Cache Valley, Utah. Alsmost 91, she stills lives in Logan not far from my sister.
Having grown up in the midst of western history, I naturally wrote about the west: people I have known or heard about, actuall places the still exist...or not, and usually try to weave actual events and people into my tales.
My greatest concern is to build believable characters, living in believable places under believable conditions, and reacting in believable ways. My stories are not traditional "shoot-'em-up" westerns and have been describes as "historica western adventure romantic mystery" stories.
