Short Story: Spur finalist

I have a new short story published in a Western anthology, "A Promise Broken, A Promise Kept," see below. It was judged by my peers as one of the top three Western short fiction stories of 2014. Below: Accepting the award at the 2015 WWA Convention in Lubbock, Texas. To my right is presenter and author Nancy Plain, a past Spur winner for her children's books.

My book about three ranchers on a treasure hunt in 1880s Texas is available from Amazon, Treasure Hunt in Tie Town, also see below.

Testimony, my first e-book, was published by Whiskey Creek Press, but when they sold, I took the rights back. It will be available again soon.

I'm working on another novel and hope to have it published soon.


In the meantime, I do seasonal work for the most hated government agency in the U.S. because they are the only ones who will give me a job. I live with my grown son, a terrier and two cats on five acres in Central Texas. I'm a member of Western Fictioneers, The Western Writers of America, The Texas Folklore Society, and The Daughters of the Republic of Texas.

Join me on my journey as I explore the mysteries of the Old and New West.
