I’ve lived all over the south, including Louisiana, where my latest novel is set. We enjoyed the Mardi Gras celebrations, talked with Cajuns, and ate King Cake. Did you know that in Louisiana you can drive through a business that sells alcoholic beverages and get a paper cup to go? As long as it has a lid, and no straw, it’s not an open container. I hope lawmakers wake up soon.
I’m married, have a great son, grown now, and live in a small town America. I have a degree in Administration of Justice, as well as one in Sociology, attended the University of California, then law school, and worked in uniform at the sheriff’s department for several years before retiring.
I’ve been writing for twenty years-but I’ve only been looking to get published for thirteen years. I have a serial fiction running in the local newspaper, have published articles in newspapers and magazines, and have written my required million words on the way to getting a novel published. My first novel, Ultimate Justice, A Trey Fontaine Mystery was published in June of 2011, and I’m now in revision with my editor on book two, Ultimate Game, A Trey Fontaine Mystery.
I’m also working on the first draft of a literary novel about a couple of doctors who have been married to each other for fifty years and are now ill. Based on a conglomerate of real people.
