Since surviving three heart attacks/stents I've continued studying foreign affairs and become a freelance writer/author/self-publisher of ROUGHNECK. Lately most of my time is spent living the dream at Lake Powell writing my manuscripts. While having Ben & Pugsley help keep me healthy and working on my old houseboat has been great fun and productive it's time to go to work for you. My goal for America is to share the possibility of world peace....
