I'm so excited to be here on Patreon and created this page so that I may continue to pursue this passion. I believe in the patronage model. It is a historic way of supporting a creator of some type of artistic work, including novel writing. I am honored that you want to be taken along for the journey and support me in doing so. Please support me at any level that you feel comfortable with and can easily afford. You set the amount, so you will never go over your budget. No matter what you pledge to support my work it will be of great benefit. And I appreciate you more than I know how to express. God bless your generosity of spirit!


Above all else, I write novels. They center on historical fiction, particularly in the American West, romance, Christianity, and all are clean and wholesome. I have already released a number of books you can find on my Amazon Author Page. However, I would like to take a moment to talk about my inspirations.

If you enjoy the feel of the wind on your face, and the open sky before you, join me here to find the romance and flavor of the West. I, too, enjoy those things, but, most of all, I love that our loving and living God, created it all for our pleasure. I love how He works out His plans in the realm of human events. I have been blessed with a gift: a compulsion to write historical and present-day novels set in the American West that demonstrates His power to transform ordinary people into true heroes and heroines. I am just a scribe really, who finds the joy of participating in the creation of inspirational fiction indescribable. May our Lord Jesus Christ receive all of the credit and be glorified.

The study of history is an ongoing fascination for me. In college, I studied American History taught by Dr. Raymond Muncy, at Harding University. He opened up the study of Western Expansion in American History by showing that it was an examination of people and their times. How did their decisions affect their own lives and the lives of those around them? As I look at the way people lived and worked, it reveals the thinking that shaped their lives: work, housing, food, family, and religion are fundamentals for people at any time. Although I also tell stories of the contemporary lives of the people of the West, most of my novels are placed in the 19th century. I love that time of our history, especially the romanticized view of it. It was a land of larger than life men and the women who stood by them, who braved harsh elements and hard work. I write so you, too, may be a part of that time and place, of the great American West.

Where else can you find me?
Sign up for my author newsletter on my website! Anyone who signs up for the newsletter will receive access to a free, digital copy of one book and will receive copies of the newsletter where I will share the day-to-day lives of people of the West in the 19th century and other musings. Give my Amazon Author Page a look to learn about my different novels. All are available on  Amazon.com in both digital and paperback formats.  

Who am I?
Born in Spur, Texas into a multi-generational Texas family, I have lived and traveled throughout the American West as well as other parts of the world and now make my home in a small town in Arkansas. Some of what I enjoy doing is reading, writing, and visiting with friends, and family. More than anything else in my life, I take great joy and comfort in my Christian life.

Once I reach this level of patronage, I will be able to hire someone to assist me with the promotion of my books, advertising, the running of social media accounts, and other, similar, responsibilities. This will free up a significant amount of time I can devote to writing and interacting with fans like you!
