Background Information

I've been writing fiction since I was twelve, but for forty years marriage, child-rearing, and the teaching of graduate and undergraduate American literature classes (Southern) diverted me from the Path. My writing includes stories about the Navy (WW2), the Old Coast Guard, the South Pacific, Ozarks hillbillies, trailerhouse people, and academia (college life), and national politics. The movie rights to my Madam President were bought by a Hollywood entertainment company, and this same firm commissioned me to write the screen play to it. My last book was Hookei Miller and the Last Days of the Old west. It was my 17th book.

Birth Place
Konawa, OK Seminole
Accomplishments

Published ten books of fiction, listed in Who's Who in American Education and Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities.

Additional Information

For years I wrote about my experiences in the US Navy (The Splendid Five), the US Coast Guard (The Hooligan Navy), and beachcombing in the South Pacific (Once Upon an Island). When I retired from teaching in 1988, I began the re-writing and polishing for publication. It has been a labor of love. Recently, my 'old' Coast Guard book, The Hooligan Navy, was published; and, as it turned out, some eighty thousand ex-GI's, veterans of the Old Navy and the Old Coast Guard were waiting for it. I've recently written a Western, a very enjoyable write, called Shootout in Greentree. Louis L'Amour would have approved, I think.
