Halldor Laxness, the Icelandic Nobel Laureate (1955), is my favorite author. His Independent People is my all time favorite book. After that, it's a free for all: I read everyone from Stephen King to the Dalai Lama.
I'm working on the Bloodsong Series. My second book, Numenon: A Tale of Mysticism & Money, starts the series off as the folks from Numenon, Inc., the largest corporation in the world take off for a Native American retreat in the wilderness of New Mexico. The retreat is lead by a shaman who is as great as his reputation. "Bill Gates meets Don Juan," said one reviewer.
In the second book of the series, Mogollon, all the promise of Numenon is fulfilled. The battle happens people die, some wish they'd died, on and on. I'm rewriting this for publication. At least five more books in the series are possible. If you want to see them, Numenon readers, tell your friends about Numenon.
Totally unexpectedly, I started writing a sci-fi series last January. I've got three books of Tales from Earth's End in draft form, the first book has had its first edit and is moving along.
Mostly I write, these days. Write, prepare for publication, and publicize my work. See my web site for more info. Horses have been a lifelong interest/compulsion. We bought our first Peruvian Paso horse in the late 1980s and have had them ever since. Rancho Vilasa, our ranch, has produce a bunch of champions and champion of champions. That isn't why we love our horse, though. We love them because we LOVE them. See our ranch website for examples. I'm interested in culture, art of all kinds, literature, topics that would cause my businessman father turn over in his grave.
