I left home at seventeen to hitchhike throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico. I wouldn't return from my journey until years later when I decided to become a writer. I've written eight books. My first novel, Redemption: The Further Adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, was awarded the Editors' Choice Award for Best Western of 2013. A subsequent novel, Yellow Hair, received the Book of the Year award from Just Reviews and Best Historical Fiction of 2016 from Colleen's Book Reviews.
