Other writing interests include cowboy and railroad poetry, and science fiction. This is his first children's book, which sat on the back burner for some twenty-five years. Other interests include gardening, reading, and playing 12-string guitar.
Many thanks to patient Dolores Wilson who, so many years ago, created the wonderfully detailed, vibrant paintings which illuminate this classic tale of young love weathering the trials of life in an exotic land.
We are both grateful to designer Caroline Metzler of Coyote Creative who has, at long last, brought our labors together in this beautifully designed book.
