A BIT ABOUT ME

My Story

I've been writing since the age of 13.  I submitted my first skit to Saturday Night Live at 14 and received a nice rejection letter. Life moved on and so did my idea of being a writer.  Then my passion came back to me in my early thirties when I joined a dinner theater production. Without warning, I began writing dinner plays, comedy skits, and started ideas for books. 


Although it took some time since I returned to my passion, I finally finished my first novel (In The End) in July 2016 and my second novel in October 2018 (Ancestry: Awakenings).  My third novel is almost ready for publishing in the late fall of 2019.  I still continue to write plays and skits, but the book writing is my dream.

I also began a podcast "Get A Life 2" in February 2019 that deals with the trivialities of being fifty plus years old.


I grew up in  Eastern KY in the small community of Vancleve.  I was influenced by the people, my parents, and the politics of the time.  Saturday Night Live, movies of the 70's and 80's influenced my comedic side, igniting something that would never go away. 

I have been married to my lovely wife since 1999 and have four children.  My two dogs and two cats provide the additional balance to my family life.  As I approach retirement, I  realize how important it is to make your dreams come true.  My dream is to be an author full time.  What's your dream?

THE WITCH DETECTIVE: FIRE & BRIMSTONE BOURBON TRAIL CASE

December 1, 2019

Put aside everything you think you know about witches.  They are not ugly, hooked nosed, green skinned, hags with plans to eat your children – at least the majority of them.  A young witch (barely over 264 years old) named Prudence dared to be different from her witch sisters.  Despite being disapproved by the Witches’ Council, Prudence was determined to become the first of her kind to be a police detective and bring her mother’s killer to justice.  When the Abysmal Kentucky Police Department opened the door for a witch police recruit, an opportunity presented itself to fulfill her dream.  Little did Prudence know that her first homicide case as a rookie would lead her to her mother’s killer.  Along with Detective Simon Mitchell, Officer Kari O’Donnell, her sister Aggie, her grandmother Millicent, and her cat Gus, they take on the Dark Covenant known as the DC.  The DC is ran by rogue witches who are responsible for the distribution and control of the highly addictive Fire and Brimstone (F & B) drug.  As their leads take them down the bourbon trail, they discover that the DC has more than just drug distribution in mind – they have deadly plans to eradicate humans and take down The Witches’ Council.  With the odds against her, Prudence uses her magic and her detective skills to show that she has what it takes to fulfill her destiny.
