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.  
 
My intent is to establish a strong sense of place inhabited by well-drawn characters and swept along by a compelling plot. Although the novels carry a tangible essence of the Southwest, the stories are universal in message and feel.
