Historical Fiction, Western, Humor, Memoir

What have you written?

I have four self-published titles on  Depression Carpenter (historical fiction); Cowgirl (Western); Triptych (humor); and On Becoming a Dinosaur (memoir).  My next title, Commune, will be released in January 2014.

When did you begin your writing career?

I wouldn’t call it a career.

Are you a full-time or part-time writer? How do you make time to write?

I am retired/disabled, so there’s no such thing as full-time or part-time.  There’s just life.

What’s your writing process? (Number of days you write per week, a.m. or p.m., specific music you play while writing, or anything else that you feel is a vital part of your creative process.)java 3

The sci-fi author Theodore Sturgeon once told me that writing is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration.  I’m sure he’s not the first to say it, but it was the first time that I had heard it.  I just make sure that somehow there are hours available for some perspiration.

Do you keep a journal? If so, for how long? Do you find it helpful for your professional writing?


What’s your inspiration?

The past, waking dreams, sleeping dreams, and coffee.

What kind of legacy do you expect your writing to leave?

I would love it if someday I was discovered by college professors as a lost gem of authorship, and then my books are used in lit classes.

What advice would you give to aspiring writers?Java 4

Don’t consider yourself an aspiring writer.  Consider yourself a writer, and get to work!

What’s on your bookshelf or in your e-reader library?

Mostly biographies, mysteries, and cookbooks.

What are you currently working on?

Nothing “write” now.  I just finished a novel and am waiting for my next lightning bolt of inspiration.

How  can we purchase your work?

Everything can be purchased on, including my audiobooks.  The audiobooks can also be purchased through  I have an author page on Amazon.
