Describe your desk
I don't use a desk very often. I carry my laptop with me and when I get the urge to write I am ready. My most productive writing is usually late at night when its quiet while lying in bed. At other times i'll work as I drink my morning coffee.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the West Texas town of Midland. Most readers will remember Midland as the the one time home of President Bush and his wife Laura as well as the first President Bush. West Texas is known for its oil, cattle ranches and cotton farms and requires its residents to face problems that other areas of the country seldom witness.
Normally dry conditions dictate farms that rely on little rainfall which is why cotton is grown. The prairie grass is usually scarce which require huge amounts of land to raise cattle so you wont see many small ranches. The oil industry is either boom or bust. One year the areas is booming because of high oil prices then the next year businesses may have to go out of business as oil prices drop.
Growing up there must have influenced my first book since that is where it takes place.
A gripping tale of fiction that explores the dark truth about man’s ability and willingness to sacrifice human’s greatest asset for greed, our children. A powerful leader of a crime cartel in Mexico has sworn revenge on a rancher in Texas that was forced to kill the crime boss’ son after he forced his way into the rancher’s house and brutally molested and nearly murdered the cowboy’s fiancé.
