In 2020, I am Eyeing The Russian

In children’s games, we began by shouting, “Ready or not, here I come.” Times have changed, but the outcry is still appropriate for the new decade. Ready or not, it is here and I’m ready. Ready to create, to write, and to make the most of every day.

It reminds me of a comment a critically ill man made when asked by a friend how he was doing. His answer was spot on. “I enjoyed my sandwich at lunch.”

Such a little thing, but how accurate. It’s the little things that count. Another way of saying it is to enjoy the journey, not just wait to reach the final terminal of wherever we are going. Enjoy the journey!

My journey as we start this new era is to make the most of each day as we construct my series of novels, the “Border Wars.” The series began with Color of the Prism, a fact-based novel set on the Arizona/Sonora border.

Tarantino Productions purchased the movie rights but never put together the fifty-million budget to complete the film. Below is a trailer …

The #MormonMurders and my Upcoming Novel
Recent horrifying images from Mexico reveal the unfathomable violence of the Mexican Cartels. Nine peace-loving Christian women and their children were sacrificed on the altar of inhumanity in the Mexican state of Sonora, just south of the Arizona border.


Questions remain as to why these lives were so violently destroyed. However, indications lean toward specific targeting for the simple reason of one cartel establishing its power and influence over an opposing cartel.

La Linea, the armed branch of the Juarez Cartel and in conflict with the Sinaloa Cartel, is the prime suspect in the slaughter of these innocents.



My research and past experience in law enforcement in Arizona brought La Linea to life for me long before the brutal murders of these nine innocent people. Last year I spent some time along the border researching my soon-to-be-released “We Were Young Once . . . ,”
