Born in 1965, I grew up on a working cattle ranch in the desert thirty miles from Wickenburg, Arizona, which at that time was exactly the middle of nowhere. Work, cactus and heat were plentiful, forms of recreation were not. The TV got two channels when it wanted to, and only in the evening after someone hand cranked the balky diesel generator to life. All of which meant that my primary form of escape was reading.

At 18 I fled to Tucson where I attended the University of Arizona. A number of fruitless attempts at productive majors followed, none of which stuck.

But when I do, I often go and sit somewhere quiet and comfortable, close my eyes, and just try to put myself in the scene. Look around. What are the characters doing? What are they saying?

As I write each chapter it goes up on my blog. It's an action/drama/comedy set in the Old West. My whole idea is to make it fun. Think Indiana Jones crossed with The Mummy. It has train robberies, gun fights, bandits, and, of course, lost Aztec treasure with a curse on it.(less)

Reflections at the end of an era

I’m almost certainly going to shed some tears while writing this, but I also know I’ll feel better after, so here goes. My son Dylan is nearly 20 and just started his second year at the university. Daniel will be 18 soon, and is in his first year of college. They’re leaving home this weekend, …

“Welcome to the world of adulthood. It’s that time where you realize the adults don’t know half as much as you thought they did. When you have to make real decisions and you’ve got no real idea what you’re doing.”
Eric T. Knight, Wreckers Gate

“Don’t expect much and you won’t be disappointed much,”
Eric T. Knight, Ace Lone Wolf and the Black Pearl Treasure

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt
