I am a mixed farmer who had the privilege of being taught about the equality of people, no matter what culture or nationality. Having this privilege, these same people have shared with me and I am richer because of it. My books are a meagre attempt to describe and thank some of these people and to write stories that both young and old can enjoy. My one hope is to write a story that a reader, once he starts, will not quit until he finishes it. I’m just a plain, ordinary guy and the stories I write are about plain, ordinary topics and everyday people.
