Originally from Oklahoma, I now reside on the Carolina coast. I wrote Leonardo Who? in 1993, then revised and published in 2013. In 1997 I was able to write an account of my 6+ years I lived in New York. In April 2014 I published Poems of a Common Man - a collection of poems and song over the decades. In May 2014, part one of an upward looking epic fantasy was published - My Stars and Other Highlights. You may find more about me at Google+ dark21Lad. I hope to continue writing and walking on the beach with my wife Sally.
