A Portrait of the Artist as a Mountain Man

Thanks for spending some quality time at my blog!

I appreciate everyone out there who has taken the time to read my work. I really appreciate all the fans who support and enjoy my work! Those of you who Like and Comment are really extra appreciated! Whoever you are, thanks for being here, and let me know if you have any ideas or opinions you think I would like to hear.

Now, on to…me? What’s that? :-p

I am a hard-working, thoughtful guy, who loves being outdoors, in the middle of Nature and wilderness, but who for financial reasons must be inside most of the time, working his life away…..So, when I can’t actually get out in person, I do it in spirit! Some of these mental excursions are the basis for this work. My work is original to my heart and mind. Even though I have these grandiose plans to finish…a book, I have yet to reach that point. But!! I hope someday soon you will be seeing lots of exciting new stuff from a new author on sites like Amazon or Goodreads or Smashwords, under my very name!!

Under the other Page link at the top of my blog (Some Other Places You May Enjoy), you can see other outlets of mine, including my own personal blog, which I am just starting up, to talk about myself personally, and stuff I like. It’s less artistic than all this junk.

Take a look around, ask me any questions, throw me any comments, and have a great time looking at my work! Thanks again for stopping by!

  1. Wow you live in the Appalachians? That must be break takingly beautiful. I live in CA in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains. I have a thing for mountains, one of my favorite things in the world. What is your novel about?

    • Well, I did live in my Appalachians, but right now I’m down in middle Georgia, near Macon (see: The Allman Bros., Little Richard, and Jason Aldean, to name a few), doing nothing at all related to music. :-p

      Yes, my homecountry is inspiringly gorgeous, and makes probably a half of my inspiration. So far, my two most concrete novel ideas, the only two I’ve made any serious progress on, are set in mountain areas. One is a not-at-all-veiled critique of economic and academic ivory towers, told through an epic hero’s journey across a fictional land of beautiful terrain and fascinating people. The other is a story of one nation’s struggle and victory to survive against a large evil empire, and the coming of age of its beloved princess, transforming into a warrior queen.

      Wow! I’ve never summed those up so well before…. Looks like you caught me — guess I have to put something from one of those up on here to see what everyone thinks, huh? 😉

      Anyway, thanks so much for your interest, and I hope you’ve enjoyed what you’ve seen here! For my own party, I’ve always wanted to see the mountains in CA, and I have heard they are gorgeous and unique in the own right! Maybe we should trade photos of what each of us sees off our porch….

  2. You’ve got a great blog, and I look forward to reading more. I love the mountains, and I’m thankful to live near them. 🙂 You’ll find lots of pics and stories relating to them if you’d like to check out my blog.
    Ps. Just s note of interest, your font colors (black and gray) cause a little difficulty in the reading. It’s manageable but a little difficult…just wanted to let you know from a “visitor.” 😉
