My newest book, Big Lake Fugitive, is moving right along through the pre-production stages. Terry finished the initial editing and proofreading on Saturday, and yesterday I finished making all of the corrections she suggested. Then I sent it off to my second proofreader. She’s usually pretty quick, and as soon as I get back from […]

My dad’s been gone for over 30 years now but I still think about him. Not just on Father’s Day, but every day. He was quite a guy and I’d love to be able sit down and talk to him again. He was part of the Greatest Generation who helped to push the Japanese out […]

I got an early start writing yesterday and things are moving along very well. So well in fact, that I thought I would be done with my new book by the end of the day. But Mother Nature and the computer gremlins were in collusion and they had other plans. This time of year we […]

In the tiny community of Centreville, Mississippi, just a few miles north of the Louisiana state line, we came across a mystery that dates back to the days of the Great Depression and President Franklin D.

Sometimes I get questions about our weekly free drawings so I thought I would answer some of them here today. Quite a few people want to know how I pick the winners every week and how they can increase their chances of winning. I don’t pick the winners. I use a free website called Random.org […]

My longtime friend Jim Lewis has been staying with us for a while now, waiting to close on a home he bought a block or so away. The closing happened on Wednesday, and yesterday we went into Port Orange and Daytona Beach looking for some furniture he needed. Our first stop was at some kind […]

For most of my working life I have been my own boss. I guess that’s probably because I don’t seem to play well with others. One thing I always tried to do, and always preached to my employees, is that the customer comes first. If you treat your customers right and make them glad they […]

I got an email yesterday from someone who needed clarification on a couple of things and said he wanted to pick my brain. My first thought was, “that should only take half a minute or so.” He said that he refers to his Jayco travel trailer, which he and his family use just about every […]
