I call the Colorado Rocky Mountains home. With such unsurpassed beauty at my doorstep, it’s easy to go hiking, camping, and exploring with my family and friends. When I am not otherwise engaged, I spend my free time writing fictional novels or short stories for young readers. The adventures in my works are directly influenced by the places that I have been, and a variety of subjects that interest me.

I welcome comments and questions from all my readers. Depending on the volume of emails I receive, I may not always be able to reply, but rest assured, I value your impute. I also realize that some typographical errors might slip by myself, or the editors. If you find an error, please feel free to send me an email and I will make an effort to remove the error in the next revision of the book.

If you enjoyed reading any of my books, please take moment to write a review as it helps other readers find my works.
