About
I particularly enjoy writing historically based ballads, and have had an interest in the American West and the Civil War for years - writing numerous articles for Wild West, True West, and Old West magazines. I write lyrics with individuals who have their own home studio equipment or are part of a Bluegrass, Folk, or Western music group. Since this is my hobby (in addition to non-fiction short story writing) I don't pay for demo production. I simply enjoy knowing my little song stories are being heard.
