Thank You

 "I want to give a special thanks to those who read the first chapter of Lone Oak and encouraged me to continue on. Their comments about vividly picturing the scene in their mind was such an encouragement that I continued on for years to produce the final work. Please enjoy."

Lone Oak is now available to order e-mail me at today for your signed copy.


 Vengeance is Mine out now. Don't forget to order your copy today. After misplacing more than 150 pages many were wondering if it would ever be available as originally written. I am very glad to say, YES!  If you liked Lone Oak I think you'll enjoy reading where James Harding's journey began. Be forewarned, Vengeance is Mine starts with a vengeance that doesn't stop until the very end.




 Here's a sneak peek.



 Thrown backwards by the impact, Ruthie landed on her back. Her sightless eyes stared into the blue autumn sky as blood soaked the front of her dress. Ruthie who had loved him when he was yet wild; Ruthie who had borne his two children and taught him the joys of family; his one and only love and the one who had tamed him lay dead on the ground.

 Dan snapped. Deep within him the wildness that had been tamed by Ruthie sprang to the surface. Twin six-guns leaped from their holsters and in less than a second the man who had fired the first shot was blown from his saddle with two forty-five caliber holes in his chest less than a hands breadth apart. The rearing of Jacobs’ horse saved his life as the animal took the bullet intended for him between the eyes. The man who reminded Jacobs that they had come for gold fell to the ground with a “third eye” in his forehead. Then the return fire began.
