I was born in East Texas and spent most of my life there, principally around the Bryan and College Station area. I went to Austin, Texas, in 2002 and shortly thereafter began writing The Bill Travis Mystery series. I presentl live in Austin with my wonderfu wife, Sallie, along with two cats and two cat.
Writing is both my avocation and my vocation, but to add to these I play both classical violin and country fiddle, and I dabble in art ( mostly drawing and painting), photography, and book cover design.
I started writing in earnest in 1986, although I have been creatively writing far longer than that, practically since I could read ( at very formative age.) I ind that I have far more ideas than I ould ever write down, and consequently I pick and choose only the best story ideas. I write what I, myself, like to writ, and something more.
