I write science fiction, fantasy, Kansas history, railroad history, and on occasion I write about writing. I've had six novels published, as well as over 80 short stories, 120 articles, and over a dozen nonfiction books. I love telling stories!

Here are a few other places you can find me-

If you like what I write, you can help me out. Naturally, you can buy copies of my stuff at Amazon, Smashwords, and elsewhere. You can also post reviews of my work at places like Goodreads, as well as where you buy books. If you have a website or blog, mention that you've read and liked something. Heck, those are nice things to do for any author here whose work you enjoy.

If you're just starting out -- write every day; set a goal (pages/words per day); plan your stories in advance; & have several ideas to work on. The more you write, the better your work will get.

Happy reading!
Happy writing!

Thanks! I still smile whenever I think about the passage about Evvie trying to look like a soldier. I guess I did okay with that. :)
