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. L'Amour is my biggest inspiration and I own everything he published. My recent essay, My Personal West, details exactly how I feel about L'Amour and tells why he was such an inspiration for me.
When I'm not writing, I work as the editor 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.

PULP MODERN: Issue 1
I have a Western short story the Autumn 2011 Issue of Pulp Modern titled "Pack of Wolves." It is the first story with a new character I've created who is a lot of fun to write. He's a Western antihero. I've never written this type of character before and it opens new kinds of storytelling. I'm in the process of writing a series of stories about him and I'm also in the middle of a novel featuring this character. I'm excited about this collection being released and I'm proud to be part of it and to be featured among so many fine writers.
