About the Author
I was taught to read at the age of three because my Grandmother didn't see any reason I shouldn't. Starting with fairy tales, I set about to read every book ever published, from Jules Verne, the Classics, Asimov, King, L'Amour, Clancy to Clive Cussler. Along the way I wrote humor, newspaper articles, anything someone might read. After fifty years, I decided to get serious. Now I write from a perspective of travel, history and for the sheer love of it.
I grew up on that history through old TV shows of Roy Rogers, the Cisco Kid, Zorro and The Lone Ranger, and the movies of John Wayne. Also from the works
of Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour. I've often wondered why this period in time is so attractive to so many people and I guess it's for the same reasons I'm hooked on it: Justice, and the eventual triumph of the underdog.
Having family in the movie industry I was exposed to the classic westerns and even met some of the stars and it left a great imprint on me.
