A land beyond beyond & a place both far and near.
About Me
Retired Military, Airborne/Ranger/MP, Retired Newspaper Editor, Investigative Reporter, Author of 8 published Novels, Carpenter, Oil portrait artist(some in museums.) Gardener/Farmer, Sculptor, World traveler, Jack of all trades and dreamer. My military decorations include the Silver Star, 4 Bronze Stars, 3 Purple Hearts & many more. I love to cook and try new recipes. I am also an ordained minister and Honorary Doctor of Divinity.
Type of Writer
Some authors like to describe every detail of a story or book, I prefer to let the reader's imagination fill in the blanks.
Writing Style
Comfortable! Actually I just write because I love to write....
Everything! I am an avid history buff and often give lectures on American Civil War History and other historical eras. Roman history is my favorite from the founding of Rome to the decline and fall. I also like the period from 900 to 1400 AD.
