Hello and Welcome to My Website!
I write mostly Westerns because quite frankly, I was born in the wrong century. I don't limit myself exclusively to that genre, but it is by far my favorite because I grew up reading Louis L'Amour, Max Brand and Zane Gray and watching John Wayne, Robert Mitchum and Clint Eastwood. L'Amour is my biggest inspiration and I own everything he published.
When I'm not writing, I work as the Editor-in-Chief and webmaster of The Western Online, an online magazine that is dedicated to everything Western. We publish fiction, artwork, articles, serialized fiction, book reviews, exclusive interviews and even a Western comic strip.
TWO OF A KIND
Two of a Kind is a collection of 10 Western short stories that sheds some light on the early years of Texas Ranger Jud Nelson and his nemesis, the anti-hero, outlaw Wesley Quaid. It is divided into two parts, the first six stories take place before the events in the Wesley Quaid novella, OUTLAW. The final four stories continue from the end OUTLAW and concludes with tales that introduce a new villain into the story line and sets the stage for the upcoming release, NO REMORSE.
It features "Pack of Wolves," the very first Wesley Quaid story and heretofore only available in Issue 1 of Pulp Modern. "Kill the Envious Moon" is a story that reveals some of the background of the mysterious assassin, Sabrina. "One Riot, One Ranger" is a Texas Ranger Jud Nelson story that introduces a new villain into the Quaid/Nelson saga. There are themes of vengeance, hopelessness, justice and even a little bit of romance.
A smooth-talking outlaw versus a relentless Ranger. Wesley Quaid returns to Texas with the assassin, Sabrina, riding at his side. Will the deadly pair embark on a new outlaw career or will Ranger Jud Nelson catch up with them?
OUTLAW- A Wesley Quaid Novella
The outlaw Wesley Quaid wants to put the past behind him and start his life anew in another place where no one has ever heard of him. When a mysterious woman he once knew resurfaces, Wesley discovers that a man can't run from his past anymore than he can run from the kind of man he has become.
OUTLAW is available as an ebook for the Kindle for $0.99 or it can be borrowed for free if you have an Amazon Prime account, and a paperback version can be purchased through Createspace for $5.99.

The Wanted Man Short Story Collection
The Wanted Man is a collection of eight of my short stories. Four have been previously published and four are brand new. Not all of the stories are interconnected.
The title story features my Texas Ranger character Jud Nelson. "The Old Outlaw", "Marked For Death", and "Vengeance is Mine" are all stand alone stories.
"Stagecoach for Sally", "Killer For Hire", "In Plain Sight", and "Nelson's Code" all feature my antihero character, Wesley Quaid, who first appeared under a slightly different moniker in the story "Pack of Wolves" in Issue 1 of Pulp Modern. "Stagecoach for Sally" is a direct sequel to "Pack of Wolves" and the next three stories all follow Quaid's exploits including his run-in with Texas Ranger Jud Nelson.
THE WANTED MAN is available for the Amazon Kindle and as a Barnes and Noble NOOK BOOK for just $0.99. The paperback version is available on either Createspace or Amazon for $5.99. More work featuring both Jud Nelson and Wesley Quaid is forthcoming.
