 Hi Call me Mike!

I have been inspired to write since Middle School and won my first award, the Journalism Gold Medal Award, as a high school senior.  A native of Louisiana, I have traveled many places such as Costa Rica where I enjoyed writing about the people I met.  

Falling in love with my wife, Leda, brought me to Georgia.  Together, we have collaborated on my books.  She illustrated the I Hate Vegetables book.  A retired educator, I enjoy writing books for young readers and have developed a persona for each one for public apperances.

n the 1870’s, Billy was looking forward to a lazy summer in West Texas, until he ends up as the trail boss taking the cattle to market. The adventures begin.

It’s the 1840s along the Mississippi River. Follow the adventures of Mike and  Cletus, believing they will be charged for two murders on the riverboat, escape capture through the backwoods of Illinois, down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.
