About the books
My goal has always been to write a book that I would want to read, the sort I would recommend to a friend. In a Hollow Land,
Silence, Water Flow Down, The Consequent Touch of McHenry Feathers and South by Degrees are
character-driven novels set in various locations across Texas and Oklahoma. These stories capture the essence of people, places and experiences that inhabit and in some ways haunt my past. While
the characters are no doubt influenced by people I have known, they are in no sense living persons but rather unique personalities in their own right and as real to me as the memories
of people long passed.
When I start a book I have a general idea of the story but the book soon takes on a life of its own as the characters and plots develop. At times,
I honestly have no idea where the narrative might go next. The truth is, I’m often surprised by the end result. Lucky for me. If I knew the complete storyline prior to beginning
I would soon lose interest. In that sense the process works well for me.
My intent is to establish a strong sense of place inhabited by well-drawn characters swept along by a compelling
plot. Although the novels carry a tangible essence of the Southwest, the stories are universal in message and feel.
