About the Author
I love writing funny, entertaining tales about quirky, sometimes strange people. The small towns I've lived in have been a good source of inspiration for individuals who just don't fit in the "normal" category. I seem to notice a lot of the marginal types--the quirky individuals that others don't see--and I love using some of their traits as inspiration for my characters.
Over the years, I've toyed with the idea of studying stand-up comedy, or even clowning, but I'm basically a shy introvert who loves working from the privacy of my own home.
I grew up around kinfolks who had a quirky sense of humor, and I guess I inherited it. Put that together with all the Alfred Hitchcock, Twilight Zone and cop TV shows I grew up with, and a little bit of mayhem and murder creeps into the mix. The nicest compliment I got on one of my stories was that it's "Hitchcockian."
Things in the world are tough enough these days and the bad guys don't always get their comeuppance. Writing is hard work, but if one of my stories distracts people from their problems for even just an hour, then it's all worth it to me.
I am also the author of the "Nameless, Texas" short story mystery series, a set of cozy stories featuring a mess of rowdy characters and have won awards for my comedy stage plays written for young people.
