Profile Information

Madison, TN
About Me:
I have been writing in one form or another for more than 60 years - newspapers, magazines, speeches, PR, advertising and, yes, fiction - my career path wriggles like a snake. I have five Greg McKenzie mysteries (a retired Air Force OSI agent, he and his wife run a PI shop) in print. Check them out at I have two books in the Sid Chance series, the latest out in Octobe 2011. Oh, I also write short stories, but n ot very often.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Books And Authors I Like:
Some of my favorite authors are Robert B. Parker, James Lee Burke, Harlan Coben, Jan Burke, P.J. Parrish, Barbara Parker, Tim Hallinan, Elizabeth Terrell, and Ben Small.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Since I average about one movie a year, it's sort of hard to say. I'm not much of a TV watcher, either, except for the news. My wife has been hooked on Hallmark Channel movies, and I've seen a few there I liked. I'm mostly a reader and a listener (to other people talking).

She would relate stories about him that sounded a bit off the wall but still believable.

After a few years, she asked me to meet with him at her place one night to talk about a book he wanted me to co-write. We… Continue

Rescuing the Greg McKenzie Mysteries

When my small press publisher decided to cut his costs for warehousing by pulling my third book out of circulation, I acquired a supply of them to go along with a limited horde of the first two books, which were out of print for all practical purposes. I got an Amazon Advantage account and arranged to keep them on Amazon, and I put a three-book sale page on my website. Hoping to scare up some action, I created a video that I put on YouTube at…

Hi Chester
I've enjoyed your posts on DL and thought I'd introduce myself. I like your protagonist's name, and I'm adding it to my "power name" list.

Hi, Elizabeth. I got a brief mention in the entertainment column of the morning paper Friday, so maybe it'll scare up a few folks. I've invited lots of people but you never know who will show up. Tell your husband it's an easy job. He'll meet a lot of interesting people. Just be sure he knows which way to direct folks to the restrooms.
