I grew up in Oklahoma wanting to be the shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals when Marty Marion retired in 1950. Well, I couldn’t hit a big league curveball, so I went to college instead and became involved in the oil business in 1955. One thing led to another, so now in my eighties and living in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, I am writing stories about what happened along the way. My first little book has been published, Letters from the Skeleton Coast, and I’m now working on a second story that I believe will touch readers in a special way.
