  1. Love your books about Jerome, I’ve spent many happy hours in the Verde Valley going back to the 60s when Jerome was almost a ghost town and Yarnell Hill wasn’t paved Keep on writing Thanks

  2. Thanks for your kind words! Most of the photographs you see in my blog posts I have taken over the years, so it is possible to combine art, photography and writing if you want to! Be well.

  3. I am always in awe of people who actually write a book and you have written so many. I hope you will be an inspiration to me as I keep threatening to finish my short stories and get them published! I happen to love detective procedural mysteries so this is right up my street… once I have made good on some promises I made to myself regarding my photography/art/writing I look forward to reading your novels.

Let me hear what you think!
