Can you share a short bio with us so that we can get to know you better?
After graduating from Temple City High School, I attended the University of Southern California for two and a half years, then transferred to Baylor University (Waco, Texas) for my final year and a half, earning my Bachelor of Arts degree in Radio-TV in the spring of 1970. I served two years in the U.S. Army, then returned to Texas and worked in television and radio for fifteen years (Waco, Dallas, Houston, Austin). I married a Baylor girl, Patti Pye, in 1977, and we have two children: Amy, now married and living in Austin, and Cody, a Baylor senior who is pursuing a triple major in Accounting/Finance/Management Information Systems. In 1980, I received my Master of Arts degree in History from Baylor. I now am employed at my alma mater, as the promotion manager for the Baylor University School of Music.
What sort of hobbies or interests do you have?
My main interests are writing fiction and non-fiction, history, classical music, baseball, the Swedish pop group ABBA, the Australian folk group The Seekers, and such British TV series as “A Family at War,” “Goodnight Sweetheart,” “Foyle’s War,” and “Downton Abbey.” I manage a website devoted to “A Family at War” and frequently correspond in the UK with series creator/screenwriter John Finch. Recently, I was on-screen narrator for a half-hour documentary DVD on Calbraith Perry Rodgers, the first man to fly across the United States. I have written two novels, "Home Sweet Home Front" and "Bonnie Ploughwright," and currently am in the process of writing a third.
