My writing career began in the closet of my grandmothers house at about the age of ten, (that is where she kept the typewriter), where I punched out a half page detective story about a stranger who had found a stray dog, and when confronted, gave it to me. The end. It took too long to type and I was ready to go off and do something else after that strenuous hour. Now some thirty years later I've decided to finish some things and get some of my works out there. Some are relatively new, like the Leopard Rider, and some I have been laboring over the past twenty years, like Deeds of the Kind. My goal is to write a good ... read more
