About the Book

“Country Deluxe” came into the making in 1987, while riding my horse on the mountain where I grew up.  However, “Yesteryear Forever” and “Mistaken Love” was written for two of my sisters, they are a bit different from the other poems I have written.  “Country Deluxe” was completed in 1993 and set tucked away in a closet, coming across it once more, I thought now’s the time to do something with it, after all – nothing beats a failure except a try.  Most of the pictures are taken where I grew up, this book truly, expresses my love for farming and the mountain life.  All my hopes and long time dream of getting  published has finally happened.  I hope it becomes a success and others will get the same heart felt feelings that I put into it, especially our “American Farmers.”  Hope you enjoy and God Bless!

About the Author

I was born June 15 – 1962, moved to the mountains of Champion PA. in 1968.  I am the fourth of ten children, happily married with two of my own.  My love for having my own business is just about complete, which consists of gunsmithing, leather, small engine repair, bronzing, imprinting gifts and photography shop.  With my unending love for horses I received an award for horsemanship and became a farrier in 1981 and have been since.

I have eight horses now, they keep me as busy as children, in order to take good care of these beauties I successfully took up veterinarian assistance.

My hobbies are playing guitar, collecting antiques, reading old books, bluegrass and country music and last but not least, my 1975 ford hi-boy!
