Being from Texas, I am a naturally gifted teller of tall tales. A stint in the US Navy sent me to exotic locales in the Pacific and Indian Ocean seeking adventure. I have performed as drummer and vocalist for several Texas bands appearing throughout the country, from Bourbon Street to the Sunset Strip. I have a Bachelors degree in Film, a Masters in Education, and am a lover of early 20th century film. My writing ambition is to join classic noir with classic pulp adventure. Think Edgar Rice Burroughs joins Mickey Spillane in an exploration of King Solomon's Mines. I currently live somewhere in Texas with four cats.
