Welcome to my website where I practice my favorite pastime…story telling. I’ve been an avid reader all my life and I’m blessed to be the product of “front porch” socializing where all the best stories begin. Growing up on a farm in a very rural area where the phone was on the party line system (yes, there was such a thing) and neighbors socialized by coming to “sit a spell” on the front porch swing, I began my journey as a story teller. The love, laughter, heartache, and sometimes juicy gossip of those visits still whispers to me whenever I sit down at the keyboard and let my imagination run wild.

Listening quietly to my elders as I sat on the porch steps or (when they were unaware of my presence as I played quietly under the front porch) taught me the art of a good story. I’ve been scribbling ever since. I hope you’ll find some of those scribblings enjoyable. I’ve posted a few short stories for you to sample here.

I’m very excited about my new detective. The first book in the Hugo August Detective Series, The Rat Catcher, is now available at your favorite book retailer. I find I really enjoy murdering people…on the page, of course.

If you’re interested in being an early reader in the next book in this new series, She Had To Die, you can go here and sign up for a free download. It’s still a work-in-progress but once I type The End, I’ll be sending out Advanced Reader Copies.

And if you’re interested in my other books, you can find them here.
