Georgia O'Keeffe
Santa Fe always meant Georgia O'Keeffe to me.  Her paintings were an inspiration to my own work and her mysterious life was awe inspiring to me.  The Georgia O'Keefe Museum is a must see if you ever visit Santa Fe. 

My favorite paintings are the many works of flowers she did.  These were done in the 1920s and 1930s.

"The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, opened to the public in July 1997, eleven years after the death of our namesake artist. A visit to the O’Keeffe Museum offers insight not only into the artist’s paintings, but also her creative process and the light and landscape that inspired her. In addition to the main Museum campus in Santa Fe, the O’Keeffe Museum maintains O’Keeffe’s two homes and studios in northern New Mexico, a research center and library, and a variety of collections relating to O’Keeffe and modern art.

LATEST BLOG - The Beginning

My first “real” book The Bootlegger’s Legacy was a story of desperation.  The two main characters were both desperate, one financially and the other emotionally.  Mike Allen and Joe Meadows had been friends since grade school and now in middle age they both were just surviving, waiting on something to happen; their futures did not look bright.

Book Updates

Murder So Final --draft cover above.  Book should be released very, very soon?
Tommy Jacks, experiencing success as a newspaper columnist, finds new love and old threats while covering the most brutal, ugly U.S. Senate race ever.  The 1972 campaign in Oklahoma is between a ruthless oil baron, an idealist college professor and a reverend running under the God Party, set against the backdrop of a massive oil tank-farm inferno that threatens a major city.  As Tommy puts it, “Electing lousy politicians is an American right—not one spelled out in the Bill of Rights, but a right, nonetheless. You just hope that the bad ones don’t outnumber the good ones, and the damage isn’t drastic.” But politics as usual suddenly turns deadly.  The winner may be the last man standing.

Fiction No More.  Done but still In the editing stage.  Looking at February/March 2019 released date for Vincent Malone #3.

Durango Two Step.  Vincent Malone #4 has started.  This book opens with an amazingly violent accident which follows a cold-blooded killing at a truck stop diner.  The truck driver causing all of this mayhem was hauling, illegally no doubt, a load of toxic something; and he was now dead.  Soon Malone is in the middle of this stinky mess.

AudioBook-- Santa Fe Mojo.  In the works.  No estimated time on completion but it will be out in the first part of 2019.  I'm very anxious to hear the book; what little bit I have heard is very exciting.  It really has a different feel to the story, hearing verses reading.
