Would you take second chance at love with an old flame? Would you be able to forgive and forget, or would those old feelings of hurt and betrayal surface? In 2009 I would put those questions and feelings to the test. For almost thirty years I’d wondered what path her life had traveled. Was she married? Was she happy? Did she ever think of us? A phone call in December of 2008 was about to open the floodgates of the past. But there was one thing I couldn’t prepare myself for: cancer.
Join Debbie and I for the love of a lifetime. From the halls of high school, to meetings in college best forgotten and finally, a chance to correct the mistakes of the past and enjoy the love we were meant to share. After all, we have all the time in the world, or do we?

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Stop talking about writing that book. Sit down and get after it. Remember, no one else will do it for you.
I spent the last twenty-five years in road construction. Major back surgery in 2010 put a damper on that career. In 2009 I reunited with my high school sweetheart who tragically passed July of the same year. Her cancer returned with a vengeance. I was thoroughly crushed with her loss. It took a year before I sat down and wrote about our shared love. Since then I have written and self-published eight books. Two baseball coaching manuals, two auto-biographies, a short humorous story about being a single parent, an erotic short story collection, a World War II vampire novel and recently released a sci/fi thriller. .
I currently have two books in the works.
I live in the DFW area and spend my free time with my family and grandchildren.What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Debbie’s daughters. After she passed, I asked the girls if they would like to know what their mom was like in high school. They thought it’d be a great tribute. I won’t say it was all fun and games remembering everything we went through, but in the end, it was well worth the journey of recollections.
