I started writing over 30 years ago when I was in the army. When I got out of the army I sent my manuscripts to a literary agent in New York (Glenn Cowley Agency). They liked my work and agreed to represent me. I soon sold YA books to Berkeley Publishing of N.Y. and E.P. Dutton of N.Y.
My books were also sold abroad and were featured in the Troll Book Club. A set of my books were given to the Minister of Education of Russia while he was in the U.S. visiting schools. I have presented programs to over 200 schools in four states.
One of my books won first place in a state-wide m.s. contest. I write primary YA but have recently written in other genres. Five of my books are in the national AR program.
I was contracted with Vinspire about six years ago when they were expanding their genres into YA. I have had five books published by Vinspire. I have enjoyed my time with them and am excited by the increased distribution to other countries.
