My private detective skills tell me that if you are reading these words, you have probably read one or more of my adventures. Or maybe you heard about my stories from a friend.

Or, perhaps, my author friend – Gerald Darnell, tricked you into reading this. He does stuff like that.

But I’m glad you’re here, regardless of the reason. Please allow me to use this opportunity to introduce myself, my characters and my mystery adventure series.

My adventures and stories occur in the early 1960’s. The geography is mostly Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Florida and Mississippi – but I do occasionally venture further out into other parts of the world. At the center of all my mysteries is Memphis and a small West Tennessee town called Humboldt.


Excerpt

The early 60’s represent some different and difficult times in our history and culture. Manned space flight was already happening. John Glenn circled the earth three times in Friendship seven and trips to the moon were already on the drawing board. However, nuclear testing was underway and rockets were being built and aimed at other countries. The Cuban Missile Crisis was front-page news. If that wasn’t enough, segregation was coming to an end and the new world was trying to learn how to deal with integration – on a large scale. Our National Guard escorted James Meredith to classes at the University of Mississippi and President Kennedy forced George Wallace to admit two students at the University of Alabama. A small ‘police action’ by our military, (in a place call Vietnam), was taking many young men by surprise - receiving a letter from the draft board.

Gasoline was $0.31 cents a gallon, eggs were $0.54 cents a dozen, a gallon of milk was $0.49 cents and a first class postage stamp was $0.04 cents. The average cost of a new home was $18,200, the US population was 186 million and the Dow-Jones high was 767.
90% of Americans own a television set, Polaroid introduces color film that develops in 60 seconds and the 1962 World’s Fair is in Seattle.
The New York Yankees win a seven-game World Series over San Francisco, Green Bay beats the New York Giants in the NFL Title Game and Sonny Liston knocks out Floyd Patterson to win the world heavyweight championship.
