Introduction Born in Rochester, Minnesota, I grew up on a South Dakota farm, attended a one-room country school and was the first member of my family to attend college, earning degrees in journalism and public relations from South Dakota State University with further coursework in creative writing and film at Colorado State University. A U.S. Army infantry veteran, I was an Honor Graduate from the U.S. Defense Information School (DINFOS). I've had a long career as a writer, editor, and educator, winning awards for my work in all three fields. And I've authored 9 books, 3 songs and a one-act play, contributed to two anthologies and have written hundreds of news, sports and feature stories, both as a journalist and in public relations. “Rainbow Rock” is my newest. “And the Wind Whispered” & “Killer Blizzard” are my longtime bestsellers. And I'm currently working on a 10th novel, tentatively called "Devil's Thumb." I am a frequent presenter on the topics “Storytelling: From Journalism to Creative Writing” and “The Writing Life.” Contact me about dropping by to speak to your organization or book club. I enjoy it very much.
