"I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could."


Background Information

 

                                               "There is a writer in all of us!

The influences most notable in my life, other than being a born again Christian, begin with my 7th & 8th grade English Teacher, Ms. Donnie Watts. Ms. Donnie took no prisoners when it came to the use of the English Language; we conjugated verbs, we diagrammed sentences, we had spelling bees, we had to read aloud from the classics, and were even graded on our penmanship. I was also schooled by Mrs. Haller in Latin I & II, although as a teenager I had no idea how valuable my early education would be.

When I retired in 2004 I followed the teachings of Ms. Julia Cameron in her book, "The Artist's Way". I learned to simply write down by hand, my thoughts, in a free-flowing manner every morning for 12 weeks; on a morning in week 9, with my pen and 3 pages of yellow legal paper, my first story began to tell itself.

I have been good at many things: Sales, Sales Mgmt., U.S. Air Force Physiological Training Instructor, Space Suit Technician/Rescue Tech at NASA, Auto Dealership Service Advisor,

Fleet Sales Mgr, Musician/High School Band Director, Landscape worker and Supervisor ... so you can see the pattern ... I am blessed with many talents but was never happy with any career until I began to write.

I most enjoy writing fiction because it allows the 'little boy' in me to come forth and be free to let his imagination roam just as Ms. Julia Cameron taught me.

I am now happier than I have ever been before because I now have my beloved laptop, my grandchildren whom I adore, both 'my exes who live in Texas' and are friends of mine, and a fine co-author named Raymond D. Mason, author of over 60 books himself.(We co-authored the first three books of the "American Knights" series.)

I have recently published via CreateSpace and Kindle, the fourth in a series of historical novels based on my 'Knight ancestry';

"American Knights-Book I, "Miles Knight: The Immigrant", published March 3, 2014.

 "American Knights-Book II,"Miles Knight: The Patriot", published April 30, 2014.

"American Knights-Book III, "Miles Knight: The Saboteur", published December, 3, 2014.

"American Knights-Book IV, "Miles Knight: The Avenger", published January 22, 2015.

Additional Information

On May 21, 2014 I attended my first book signing in my hometown of Dumas, Arkansas. The event was sponsored by the Desha County Museum and initiated by my high school classmate, The Honorable James Berry, Mayor of Dumas. (A little joke on me; I had to ask someone on what page I should sign my name.)
