Bio: Since I can remember I?ve been making up stories. As the oldest grandchild I told stories to the younger kids at family get-togethers at the old farm in Michigan, where I was born and grew up. An avid reader from about the fifth grade when I discovered the school library, I enjoy most genres. But I tend to write most in the areas where I have worked for a living.
My undergraduate work was in physical chemistry, but my graduate work in Psychology. During my working life, I spent ten years as a county social worker. In that capacity I worked with people with all kinds of problems, some of which they brought on themselves, and some of which they were saddled with from having loved the wrong person. The next twenty years were in probation. There I worked with essentially the same people?the ones who hadn?t dealt with their problems before the got crosswise of the law. In that arena also, I spent much time counseling the wives, husbands (occasionally) and children, and parents (often) of those who had messed up.
In too many cases the reason was substance abuse / dependency. So I wrote about those people in Send an Angel (Author house, 2002) who have that problem, love the person who has that problem, or were victimized by those with an addiction. Because all of us are romantics, whether or not we admit it, I have to put a little romance into my stories.
My love of western lore produced Billy Killdeere in 1995. It sold out, but the company went under before we could reprint. Killdeere Way, the sequel is in your hand. Colorado Justice is in the editing stage; the latter two are with Treble Heart Books. Fireball, a suspense-thriller is currently with a book doctor. After Kat Martin read Billy Killdeere, and reviewed Angel, she insisted I must write romantic fiction, that she knew no male writers, and few female writers who wrote love scenes as sensuously as I do. Treble Heart Books has two of those under consideration.
I?m married to the former Phyllis Sharp. We have a son, Larry, and a daughter Lacey, from my previous marriage, and a daughter Pam, and son, Matthew, from her previous marriage. There are two grandsons and a great-grandson as well?so far.
