Shock and Amazement

My sneaky publisher, Champagne Book Group caught me napping! They went and put HOLLOW POINT on the market this morning, two weeks before it was due! Am I upset? Heck No! Now you have one more eBook available as a Christmas present. After all of this hype, I hope you enjoy the story. Merry Christmas!

Shameless Seasonal Solicitation

Sometimes it's hard to blow one's own horn without feeling a tad awkward. Fortunately, I was not born with such a hinderance! It's almost Christmas and I have an easy way to help you out a bit, especially if you have a family full of readers who just might like contemporary Native American fiction and don't know it yet. It doesn't even take up any space under the tree!

I'm posting mostly the same information on all of my social media sites so I don't accidentally miss someone. I have three ebooks that are available for your reading enjoyment and none of them take more than two or three minutes to download onto your eReader; Song of the Unsung and Heart of the Unsung on Amazon/Kindle, Buffalo Hump from Champagne Book Group (

The Amazon books are also available in paperback and if you don't mind waiting until after the Holiday Season, Hollow Point will be released on January 6th with Champagne Book Group.

Check out my website at for even more information about my work if you get the opportunity.

I hope you and yours have a great Christmas this year. Don't forget the Reason for the Season!

Father To A Pretty Smart Cookie

I think Aleah, my youngest's, baby shower I went to yesterday was my second. I always thought this was a girl thing, but the men of the family seemed to have gotten sucked in, maybe in the hope of garnering more presents. That's my suspicious "Dad" mind at work.

So we're all sitting around this room with piles of presents accumulating on nearby tables and out comes my "Squirtly," all decked out in her baby shower costume.

This girl is no bigger than an underdeveloped tadpole, but her current status puts as much out in front of her as most of her mass is normally. I always worry she's going to fall forward onto her nose if she ever tries to stand up straight in her condition.

If she were with a tribe in the old days walking along a path, she would have done some serious damage to the flora and fauna dropping these two chicklets just off the beaten path, not to mention she'd probably scare every wild critter in the neighborhood with her howling. She's small but very loud.

What did her baby shower costume look like?

Pretty creative way to camoflauge Elloie and Kaelee, who should be here in the next 5-6 weeks!

Thanksgiving And A Road Trip

Friday was my side of the family's Thanksgiving celebration. A few were missing, but for those who were there, a good time was had by all with the usual traditional gorging and family truth stretching.

 Then on Monday 3 of my 4 offspring and Grandson Waylon trekked to the Olympic Game Farm in Sequim and bonded with the buffalo, bears, elk, wolves, cougars, lions and tigers and all manner of creatures. Waylon loved seeing his first buffulo and got slimed. One downside to driving the rig is you don't get to see what's going on in the back seat. All I heard was he and Ben giggling. It was a great two days of adventure!

Waylon even got a stuffed buffalo out of the deal from the gift shop. He was a happy camper!
