I am a native Texan currently residing in Shreveport, LA.  My educational background includes a B.S. and M.S. degree from Texas State University and Ph.D. degree from Texas A&M University in the life sciences.  During my professional career, I served as a university professor, researcher, and administrator.   I published over 60 papers in scientific journals for both professional and lay scientists.  I was also involved in the amateur music business as a performer and band leader.  I self-published two books to be used as instructional material in Sunday School Class.   Since retiring as the Associate Dean for the College of Arts and Sciences at Louisiana State University in Shreveport, I have focused on writing.


As a writer, I have written songs, plays, and novels.  As a song writer, I have written a wide variety of types of music including country, oldies, gospel, pop, and Christmas, but I specializes in country and classic rock and roll. Examples of my song lyrics can be heard at  Lyrics to some of some of my recently written songs can be heard in the My Writings section of this website as well as in several videos on Youtube.  As a playwright, I have written both plays and musicals in which I served as composer, lyricist, and book writer.  Scripts for my plays can be found at
