Welcome to my website. As an aspiring author, my website is ever-evolving and I hope someday to make my site both interesting and resourceful for other aspiring authors out there. And, of course, I hope my novels will find their niche and gain a following that will allow me to continue to write.
As my bio indicates, I’m currently an inmate at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. For the record, however, I’m not here for a crime of moral turpitude, but rather I’m here as a result of too many beers over too many years, some hometown politics and a questionable police chase. Needless to say, like most prisoners, I hope to someday be freed and I continue to fight for my freedom today and ultimately, I feel I’ll prevail.
As one might imagine, being an aspiring author in a prison setting presents its own unique challenges, including the limitation of a computerless environment and often having to write in hostile and tense conditions. Thankfully, to counter that, I’m blessed to have loving and supportive family and friends.
Some of the how-to books preach “Write what you know.” Hmm, okay, that gave me pause. I know myself and my penchant for getting into trouble. Nothing to write home about, but perhaps my trove of experiences upon which to draw enhances my writing resulting in entertaining reading?
Now, my thoughts often take me back in time and that’s where I’d like you, readers, to tag along. Go back in time, with my friends and me, in my debut novel “Hindsight” and the year 1976. Back to the big city of Austin and its wealthy section of town, Tarrytown. Back to a time when everything was possible when my friends and I teemed with optimism and mortality was not on our radar. I believe you’ll enjoy our antics and our adventures; perhaps enough to make you laugh, make you smile, keep you in suspense, and perhaps even allow you to share the excitement with us, albeit, safely and vicariously.
Writing my first novel was the hardest endeavor I have ever undertaken. There was no path of least resistance, only obstacles to overcome. Now the ball’s in your court. Take a chance and read “Hindsight.” I believe you’ll find the characters colorful, the adventures surprisingly hilarious, yet suspenseful, and the conflicts challenging and perilous.
Or, if current times and thrill-suspense is more to your liking, check out “The Girl in the Attic,” the first novel in the “Eddie Winston Series.” It’s a novel that will keep you on edge and keep you rooting for the underdog.
Happy reading and thank you for visiting my website. Please share my site with friends and like me on Facebook.
