I try to write about serious issues, but it always turns into humor/satire. I mean it.


Background Information

My first satire, "The Very First Gimme in the History of the World," was published in a regional PGA golf magazine. This satirical piece led me to write a column, One Over with Bogey Oller, in the same magazine. Later, I obtained a Hollywood agent, on a one shot deal, to submit a Newhart teleplay to the production company. Two of my all time favorite characters Darrell and his brother Darrell, one of which never spoke, was a challenge I couldn't resist.

As a real estate analyst I published several technical articles on eminent domain issues (government taking of private property) for, The Association of Eminent Domain Appraisers, a state-wide professional organization


 

 My earliest reading influence as a child was Jesse Stuart's, Taps for Private Tussie. The hill-country dialogue blew me away. As a teenager it was the Mickey Spillane series, and finally John Steinbeck and others.
 

 I combined my published satirical writing skills and technical mortgage banking knowledge to create a topical satire on a loony savings bank
