Hi, to all my faithful friends and followers.

After inundating you all with "how to writing" information I thought maybe today I'd try a different tack. I realize most of you don't have any idea who I am. I know some of you do and well, maybe you've read my bio. That does give you some idea of who I am and where I'm coming from, but I thought for today I'd give you more specifics.

In case you haven't figured it out yet, I attended John Swett High School (Class of '65) in Crockett, California. This is the model for the school described in my novel BRIDGETOWN HIGH. I loved that school, and the kids who attended with me, as well as the teachers who were some of the greatest teachers I ever met. I suspect most of them have passed on to the Spirit World by now.

This school is where I earned letters in Track during my Junior and Senior years, and broke the school record in the 440 yard relays. I'm not sure that's ever been broken since then, but probably ha

This is where I played French Horn in the Concert band, and the Alto Sax in the Marching Band. I know. Those are quite different instruments, but I couldn't march with a French Horn, or even the so-called "E-Flat," or "Peck Horn" the director wanted me to play in the marching band. That horn just wasn't cool, but everyone loved a sax player. Those were also the days of Paul Desmond and Dave Brubeck, some cool and great musicians.

These were the days when I met and kissed my first girlfriend. More about that on another day? -- not -- too personal, but she knows who she is, and I think she may be following this blog.

So, that's about it for now. If any of you have any experiences like mine, I'd love to read about them on my Fan Page on Facebook, or as a comment at the end of this post. If you have any questions you'd like me to answer about writing and publishing, or where I grew up, I'll try to answer as best I can.

In the meantime, I'd love to have your email address so I can send you announcements of upcoming events like the blog tour / Media Blitz I am scheduling for the first or second week in October. I will possibly reduce the price of my e'novel (BRIDGETOWN HIGH), so if you haven't got a copy yet, now would be a great time to buy one.
