He’s a Christ Follower and a Texan to the core. He likes to say that he owns two types of shoes; flip-flops and cowboy boots. He loves to ride horses but he hates being called a cowboy. As he once said, “I don’t dip snuff, I’ve never owned a pair of Wranglers, and I hate country music, unless you count ZZ Top as country, of course.”
Most weekends he can be found driving across Texas with his camera taking pictures for his website His photographic philosophy is simply that, “There’s pictures everywhere, you just got to find a way to get them into your camera.”
He is writer or contributor on three different blogs and once published a weekly newsletter titled, “Mondays”. Currently he is focusing on his two blogs, LD talk and PixTalk. And, of course he’s hard at work on his third novel.

Pirates or Patriots
by L.D. Watson
On the morning of September 16, 1814 the USS Carolina begins a cannon bombardment of a tiny Mississippi delta island. In a New Orleans café a young woman awaits the man she hopes will rescue her from life in a Bourbon Street bordello. And in a French Quarter market a young merchant/pirate must choose between love and saving his new county from 12,000 war hardened British troops.
