Thirteen Short Stories with Southern Character







  An appropriate article by A.R. Williams appeared in the July 2017 issue of National Geographic regarding the colonization of the South Pacific. “Going farther, to remote Oceania, required a very different voyaging strategy from what was used before,” says University of Oregon archaeologist Scott M. Fitzpatrick,” (who contributed to a recent seafaring study). “No islands were visible, so sailors had to use a celestial compass.” http://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2017/07/explore-adventure-colonizing-south-pacific/

This article was appropriate to me because of the recent release of my first novel, Lost Legend of Vahilele, now available on Amazon. Click on the Lost Legend tab at the top of this page for details of the tale and personal revelation.

      Thanks Bro, perseverance is necessary in any endeavor, especially in the arts when recognition might come only after death, like Van Gogh.The standard advice has always been to follow your passion. That I am doing, and happy there are a few who take notice. Seriously.

  2. So excited for you, my friend. Congrats on both projects! Is that the restaurant across the street from the big RV park and sales in Marion? Looks familiar, but sorry, this Kansas girl can’t help with stories. Blessings on your writing!

      Yes, Granddad was a famous bear hunter and first built a grill and filling station in 1930. Business was great since there was no interstate, and expansion was swift. The Gibbs family’s story is a colorful part of the county’s history, and I look forward to telling it.
