Biography

I have come to understand that happiness is a byproduct of working at something you enjoy and not a goal in itself. It can be anything, a sport, musical instrument or hobby, as long as it takes effort and discipline. Some time ago I realized that one of the things that truly made me happy was writing.

Anything that gets people, especially young people to read is wonderful. However, it is tragic that we have separated and withdrawn from the real world to such an extent that we no longer see the mystery and wonders of nature that are our birthright.

The Lex & Ricky Mysteries are meant to expose young people to the wonders of the natural world and our collective native heritage. An awareness of sustainability issues is provided along with questioning the cost of trading away our inheritance for short lived "prosperity," often to people who do not live in our communities. Most people cannot possibly imagine the rich natural and spiritual life they are denying themselves.
