Born in Eldon, Mo in 1944. I had three brothers and one sister. We lived on the farm, worked hard and didn't have much money, but we had fun and enjoyed life. I was married at 19 and divorced after 3 1/2 years. Went into the Army in 1967 and went to Ft. Leonard Wood for basic and then to Ft. Ord California. Met my wife of 45 years in Seaside, Ca. We have 4 children and 10 grandkids. Have gone to the same little church for 43 years, love God and his church. Started writing some 20 years ago but got published in June of this year. My favorite saying is ( Don't let your mouth overload your hands) Semi -retired now and writing is my employer of choice.
