|Location||Port Orford, Oregon, United States|
|Introduction||Seems I've spent a good deal of my life studying the rather awkward adventures of the human race. Can't say the experience was always gratifying, though 'interesting' is a word that always comes to mind. I spent most of my life with horses -- they rarely start wars, kidnap locals or swear to some political ideology -- mostly because they can't read and probably don't care anyway. At other times I wandered the world, writing for newspapers and magazines that were in a constant and desperate need for copy. I picked up a couple of degrees along the way, a few obscure literary awards and copious amounts of 'enlightened' criticism. Mostly I try to understand this rambunctious planet. My skewed political views are sometimes found at Histryonics.blogspot.com. My first book came out in October of 2011 -- usual outlets. "Mares, Foals & Ferraris." It's not what you might think. My second, "The Littlest RaceHorse," a novel is due out October of 2013. All site material is copyrighted. If you have a need, normally all you need to do is ask.|
|Interests||History, international affairs, horseracing, show jumping, farriery, vet medicine, 2 ton fossilized snakes or really anything involving dyslexia, prostitution, kangaroos, cross-specie dressing or which $700 billion Congress is referring to on any given day. These topics can of course, be combined.|
|Favorite Movies||"My Dog Skip" -- Still need kleenex on that one. Really enjoy 'virus run amuck' movies like "I Am Legend." Some of my clients behaved like that. Not Will Smith, the other people|
|Favorite Music||Blues, Rock.|
|Favorite Books||"The Journal of Albion Moonlight." Been reading that one since 1962. I think I get it.|

If it is a goat AND a slinky, I'd probably want to stick around and see what develops.
