I spent twenty-five years in the wonderful world of road construction. Back surgery in 2010 put the skids on that career. My body couldn't handle the rigors of twelve to sixteen-hour days, six to seven days a week anymore. As I convalesced, licking my wounds, I wondered what to do next. Not being out in the sun getting baked, or dodging traffic, was going to be a hard act to follow. Seriously, what else did I know? An article in the Dallas Morning News caught my eye. It was about being a professional speaker. Hmm? That sounds interesting. Becoming mobile again, I took a seat in front of a blank monitor, pondering what to write.
Let's start with something I know: my life. The first work is titled "God's Plan: A Glimpse Into One's Life." I re-titled it six months later to "Why Did Everything Happen?" This is a look back at the last twenty-five years of my life and how the death of my partner, father and true love affected my life. I was amazed at the revelations.
Since then, I've moved on to write in several different genres. The current works range from the love story of my soul-mate: Debbie Beck-RIP 7-20-2009, Love’s True Second Chance, an alternate historical perspective of vampires versus the Third Reich, Occupation and Sabotage a modern- day Sci-Fi time travel trilogy, Gateway:Pioche, Destination DC, Target Berlin a short horror story, two dating guides for Russian/Turkish brides, a book of humor, a work of poetry and two Baseball Coaching Manuals.
