My dad was a storyteller and a good one, mostly historical things from his life, family, and the world in general. I listened to the same stories a thousand times, but never got tired of them. He had a knack of keeping them always delightful. Guess that's where I got my passion for stories. Grew up here in Oklahoma, a.k.a. Indian Territory, which is chock full of history, glorious characters and magnificent stories. All my stories have this setting, with inexhaustible resources. I love the writing projects I work on, diving headlong into the research and production of stories I feel are worth writing about.
