Welcome, Everyone.

I decided to start blogging because I have an active imagination and sometimes, I get an overload of thoughts in my head and the only way to decrease the overload and increase brain space is to  write.  My blog consists of writings about my feelings and views on certain subjects and issues, whether it’s personal or something in the news. On occasion, I may even voice my opinion on certain political issues.  Just keep in mind that no matter how I feel or what I say, they are MY feelings and MY sayings, even though you may disagree with certain views.  I always welcome comments and feedback, and I enjoy conversational exchanges and differences of opinions, as long as the exchanges are civilized.  All I ask is that a level of respect be maintained.  By that, I mean no bashing, no name calling, no extreme profanity, etc.  I also post excerpts from my short stories and books for your reading pleasure (?) and feedback.  I accept constructive criticism very well, so NEVER be ashamed or afraid to say what you feel.  I will NEVER debase you.  I will, however, delete mean and/or hateful comments, whether they’re directed at me or at any of my readers.  Let’s just have some fun and friendly conversations.  Welcome to my little corner of the world!


Welcome to Cowbell, Daniel Chesterfield

Introducing Book 1 of my new Chesterfield Series entitled, Welcome to Cowbell, Daniel Chesterfield.

Here’s the book description listed on Amazon:

Meet Daniel Chesterfield, a 6’7” foul mouthed straight arrow with a trite sense of humor and deep love and respect for law, order, and justice. Trading in his detective shield in Palm Beach County, Florida for a Sheriff’s badge in the rural town of Cowbell, Montana, Dan is assigned to take over the Bear Creek County Sheriff’s Office Sub-Station. Doesn’t sound like much of a challenge for a lawman, right?
Except that none of the deputies have ever received any formal training, they have no experience in law enforcement, they don’t wear uniforms, and they patrol in their personal vehicles. Ridiculed by other departments and fellow law enforcement officers because of their ineptitude, Dan is determined to provide the necessary training needed to make reputable deputies out of them and bring respect and honor to the department. However, that won’t happen without comical incidents.
The competency of the department and the deputies is put to the test when the half-naked body of the daughter of a local, prominent rancher is found at Dead Man’s Landing, a section of Hanover Pass where Emma Cooper often took nature walks. A preliminary investigation suggests that Emma’s death was the result of a grizzly attack. Forensic analyses proves otherwise. Not only was she murdered, but the test results reveal that she’d given birth only minutes before her demise, yet there was no baby at the scene.
When Dan visits Flying Aces Ranch to deliver the news to Harrison Cooper about the death of his daughter, he inadvertently stumbles upon a second crime being committed against him.
Who killed Emma Cooper and stole her newborn son? Was it the same person who wants her father dead? Are the two crimes coincidental or connected? Dan’s investigation will lead him to multiple suspects, but only one of them is guilty of murder, and he’s closer to Dan than he realizes.
Solving these two crimes aren’t the only problems facing Dan. A nemesis from his past has followed him to Montana to finish a job he started months before – sending Daniel Chesterfield to his grave.

Book 1 is only the beginning for Daniel Chesterfield in his new role as the Sheriff of Cowbell. Many more adventures are yet to come.
