It’s no secret, you were my dad’s favorite writer; after all, he named his first and only son after you. After he passed away, as I was going through his library, I came across the copy of A Conrad Argosy I never knew he had. It was inscribed to him by a young marine with whom he went through boot...

Daughter Am I, my latest novel, will soon to be released by Second Wind Pubishing, so I have to start planning a blog tour if I’m going to do one. I hear so much about how great they are — mostly from the major publishers who don’t want to spend the money to send their authors on an unvirtual tour...
