New Adventure in Life

Not one to sit still for long, I found as the walls started closing in on retirement that I really like having a JOB. Not a lot of hours spend somewhere, but a job that I can go to where I see people.

I need to be out in the public viewing people and their habits occasionally – for inspiration.

Oasis on the PrairieIt was in that moment of decision that I saw the oasis on the prairie. Oh, I’d seen it before, but this was different. Brad invited me out for an interview and asked if I’d like to work for him. Just mornings, a few hours, five days or so each week, while he took some time away to get things done.

Sounded like fun to me… An opportunity to watch sunrise from the hilltop, and view the travelers coming and going. I could do that!

And in the meanwhile, have an opportunity to sell my book while I met a whole new slew of possible characters for my next book. Come visit the Country Acres south of Lamar, Colorado and see if you can’t squirm your way into my next book!

Beaten by the task of posting an Profile

IMG_0265Yup. There I sat trying to figure out what to say on the profile. I knew there had to be something of interest I could say, more than the average, graduated in 1959 at Lamar Junior College, raised two daughters, spent a lifetime repairing other people’s appliances and milking cows every morning. Although… all of that would have been true. I just don’t feel like the average dog.

I’m a little taller, a little more traveled and a bit more adventurous than the average dog on the planet. Or at least, I like to think so.

As a Korean veteran, I understand the dangers that come with living and I know I’m capable of taking care of myself. So with that out of the way, the only thing left is taking care of others. And that’s what I talk about in my profile. I discuss the process of building characters and designing in elements of survival in my book, Out of the Forest.

If you haven’t got a copy, you might want to skip on over to and get your copy before the prices go up the first of August. Let me know what you think. Leave a comment or a review.
