I met some people who has read my books, they were happy to meet the author, to put a face with the books; I was overwhelmed with joy at the feed back I received; I extend my sincere thanks to each and everyone of them.
I have been writing for over 4o years with the dream of being a published author and so many times that dream has been put on hold due to circumstances in life , military service, marriage, raising a family, etc. Somewhere around the year 2000 I found myself single again, so I moved back to my home town of Somerset, Ky. to pursue my dream; but shortly afterwards I was remarried and raising a family, the dream had to take second place again.
By the grace of God the hard work of Kathy Ragle 'GibsonRagle Publishing' that dream began to flourish, however I still had to work which took up most of my time; my dream was still sort of on the back burner; but God opens doors and with the support of my wife I have been given the opportunity to pursue my lifelong dream.
The last couple years I had been under a lot of stress at work; over the past few months the stress level had become to much, I felt depressed all the time. But God opens doors and makes changes when changes are needed; a few days ago I quit my job and it felt like a ton was lifted off my shoulders, now I can devote my time to my family and my dream. Not only do I want to put my books out but to meet the readers, the people, it is an awesome feeling to know that I have touched someone's emotions; to make them laugh or cry or just stop and think and I hope that I can inspire new writers especially the young ones.
I have four books out, and one with GibsonRagle Publishing which will be released soon; I am currently working on two other books which will probably go to the publisher around the first of 2015.
