I remember a visit to my grandmother's farm when I was about four. She gave all the kids bowls of ice cream, telling us when we ate all of it a magical picture would appear in the bottom. I remember eating all of mine (as if I needed help) and looking at the little scene in the bottom of the bowl. A man and a woman rode in a surrey, pulled by a lone horse. I still remember the scene, but would have forgotten it long ago without the "magic".

I am a Texas writer who enjoys Southern fiction. My favorites from the American Romantic period are Washington Irving and Melville. I'm also heavily influenced by Twain and Thurber. From the twentieth century writers I like Steinbeck, Faulkner, Carson McCullers and Charles Frazier. My writing style falls somewhere between literary and commercial fiction, strongly influenced by the Southern Gothic tradition. My goal as a novelist is to capture an era in American life and preserve it for generations, being true to my heritage and my voice.

My previous publication credits include a children’s poem, “I’ll Buy My Daughter an Elephant”, published in the 12th edition of "Say Good Night to Illiteracy", an award-winning publication dedicated to raising awareness for the cause of literacy.

 
BOOK BREAK

Buttermilk Moon Fiction - General

In 1944, fifteen-year-old farm boy George Cooper goes on a Texas-sized mystical journey to find his father, lost in the Second World War.

At the height of the Second World War, George Cooper’s father is captured by the Wehrmacht. After a devastating storm, George leaves behind a mother, grandmother and girlfriend on their Texas farm and joins the Army to search for his missing father in Europe. With no training and borrowed dog tags, he finds himself in a place both foreign and frightening. George finds his way to Germany with help from a Belgian boy and a secret German book, wrecking a plane and freeing a trainload of Jewish prisoners along the way.

Back home his mother struggles to hold the family together. An eccentric aunt and boozing uncle test her patience. A grandmother grieving her dead husband comforts Sarabelle, George’s girlfriend, who has come to live with the Coopers after the storm and the loss of her family.

Set during the greatest struggle of the twentieth century, Buttermilk Moon is a distillation of what it means to be an American—a mythical connection to the land and family and mystic communion with past generations. George’s quest evokes the human will to survive, the human capacity for suffering and the perseverance—at any cost—to be near those we love.
