I started writing on Nov 1, 2009 my first novel, it took me three months to complete. you may wonder just how, I did this amazing feat...The truth is, I dreamed the novel into life, I couldn't sleep at night for the imagines, that haunted me like a motion picture. I tossed and turned many nights before, I went to my PC and started to write every thought and imagine down. With every word that was typed out, there came more pouring out with a plot that seemed, so real... that, I wondered just where it come from deep in the core of my mind.
I reasearched the 1800's and learned that most that I dreamed was a part of history, but my plot was nothing like history or any movie I had seen or book I had read. I turned to a few close freinds that are very blunt as I am, and had them read a few pages. Which, turned into the full manuscript being read. I was urged to submit the manuscript to a publisher, which I did...It was published, with yet another manuscript that I wrote within four months, now I have series of western stories...
I write hard-core westerns, with the grit and grain of the wild west. Life in the 1800's wasn't easy and I wanted the facts to be exposed, I invented the people in the time period and designed subjects and events that would keep the readers attention with every turn of the page. My motivation behind my writing is purely to re-open the pleasure of reading about the wild west, to expose the adventure and the dangers that bounty hunters and families faced along the Rio Grande.
As for the Major Influences in my writing, I would have to say all of the great western shows and movies, that I watched growing up and of course the books I read. As for my background, I'm a Texan and no, I have never written a book before...However, I believe if you have a passion for writing and motivation, you can do anything with words and paint a picture that lives on paper with non-stop action.
