I've been a writer most of my life, with my earliest verifiable work coming in third grade when I established a link between the Pilgrims and the invention of Thanksgiving (since repudiated).

The Dead Jed trilogy is my first trilogy, and first three books I've ever written. I started one back on college at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and quit after the first page (I used an electric typewriter back then, cutting-edge tech). I have no idea what it was about, but I am sure it was like every other story I wrote in which I tried to mimic Stephen King.

I've been a journalist for 35 years, the last 30 with The (now departed) Phoenix Gazette and The Arizona Republic. I love telling stories, whether they are mine or those of others.

I've lost count of the number of times I've started Word, stared at the screen and said, "Now what?" So I wrote, knowing odds were I'd be returning soon to rewrite everything.

I'm assembling a grassroots marketing campaign to get Dead Jed's word out to local teachers and school librarians. Hoping to soon score some Jed-branded posters, pens, magnets and such, dropping them off at schools with an offer to come out and speak to students -- for free! By the way, if anyone knows how to get a book listed with the Accelerated Reader program, I'd sure love to know.
