Born to be a writer, but did a hundred other things before I finished my good first novel.


Background Information

Raised mink, drove truck, drilled for oil, logged in Oregon, Montana and Idaho, a political operative, school teacher and real estate broker/investor. Behind it all I was and am a writer. Published many stories, articles, features and was deeply influenced by Erskine Caldwell, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, James Clavel, James Michener, Robert Penn Warren, Jack London and Rudyard Kipling. My first novel, FOR WHAT HE COULD BECOME, a tale coming from the great North Country has been likened to a Jack London or Robert Service novel.

Accomplishments

My main achievements are that I am healthy, wealthy and wise...now. It took awhile but I can hike, bike, lift iron, play racquetball and write a good five hours a day and keep on ticking. I am happily married for 52 years, haven't been in prison, moved because I had to, or died. And those are surely qualities I've yearned to posses.

Additional Information

My first novel, FOR WHAT HE COULD BECOME is almost sold out of the first printing of 3,300 books. The second printing will be out later this year. My second novel, THE MOST EXPENSIVE MISTRESS IN JEFFERSON COUNTY should be in stores in time for Christmas. Having a good time selling books to book clubs and appearing before them to talk about the books. Those audiences are much appreciative. I founded the Alaska Writers Guild in May, 2007 and founded the Alaska Writers Workshop in August 2007. Go to www.alaskawritersworkshop to see the great faculty and good stuff being presented. It'll knock your socks off.
