About Me

Apparently it's been a while since I checked out this page because it seems awfully truncated. So let me add a few things.

A transplanted Okie, I found my way to New Mexico via Texas (for an education), Germany (ostensibly for the US Army but actually to broaden my education), to Colorado (for work). When my company transferred me to Albuquerque, I felt comfortable in this setting at once; my wife Betty... not so much. But in time, she came around. One of my two sons was born in Denver; the second in Albuquerque. Unfortunately, we lost Betty to pneumonia and renal failure sometime back.

My college undergraduate degree was a double in Government and History. My interest in history endures. The attraction for government fell away a long time ago.

In addition to history, I like mystery. Robert Parker's Spencer series has given me many hours of pleasure. I wallow in anything James Lee Burke writes. I found the history I was looking for when I moved to New Mexico. It is a fascinating place I have grown to love. In my own inadequate way, I try to let this admiration and awe show through my writing.

So far, DSP Publications has published three of the BJ Vinson books, The Zozobra Incident, The Bisti Business, and The City of Rocks (this one not actually released until July 18). A fourth, The Lovely Pines, is in the publication process and is set for release in March 2018. The fifth, Abaddon's Locusts, is taking shape on my desktop.,

  2. Publisher has apparently stopped printing. I have one copy left. If you'll email me directly on dtm1332@aol.com, we
    ll see if we can figure out how to get it to you ... or perhaps find another source.


  3. To that long-ago Anonymous who asked after Bisti... DSP Publications now has both Zozobra and Bisti available at their site or on Amazon. The City of Rocks will be out on the 18th of next month.
