I am a native Texan and hold three masters’ degrees, two in theology and a law degree. I also hold a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology and have pastored six churches in three states, California, Indiana and Texas. I’ve been a school teacher, coach and an investigative reporter for the Fort Bragg Advocate-News and The Mendocino Beacon, both in California. I have four adult children and four adult grandchildren; and, the last 22 years have lived on the beautiful Mendocino Coast in Northern California.
Although my novel is fiction, it is also autobiographical and is reflective of my life’s story from birth until the present time. The only place it is brutally honest is when I discuss my own shortcomings. All others in my tale have been dealt with generously and lovingly. My tale will evoke the full range of emotions; however, its primary shtick is centered around humor (which abounds in Texas!). But, tears will come as will a bit of anger, reflection, self-examination and awareness. In the end, Me and Mo: A Texas Tale is all about redemption and the will to move on.
