Hi! I’m currently writing a historical novel about people who liv
ed in the Lower Pecos Canyonlands, on the Rio Grand in what is today Texas, about 2800 years before present. They left significant rock art on the canyon walls and many cast-away or forgotten things like baskets and stone tools, which lead us all to wonder about an unknown world.
Next will come three Jake Quinby mysteries based on the historical novel. Jake is an archeologist who stumbles among the evidence of ancient people, and gets mixed up in plenty of today’s mischief along the border. Like drug smugglers and of course, murder. Well, the drugs were there in the very beginning, as the books will reveal.
The first book will be out in about a year, so please, stay tuned!
I’ve been writing since the sixth grade when I fell in love with newspapers. In fact my first real job was as a reporter. Since then I’ve followed life’s trail as a teacher, university professor, and all round hack in public education. I’ve been making annual visits to the Lower Pecos for over 20 years, visiting as many painted rock shelters as I possibly could. I think it’s time somebody wrote this book. So I’m giving it a shot.
