Author has written 11 stories for General, Sci-Fi, Western, and Essay.

I hope you like these stories, I get a lot of enjoyment out of writing them.

"Wishing on a star" is actually the original story that I tinkered around with before taking off with Cha'Nara's gift and it's follow-up "A Star Called Home" I combined my love of western history with a shot of science fiction for Yankton, as well as Cha'Nara's gift

Reguardless of whether you like the stories or not please send me a review it will be most appreciated. As for the bold type I can't figure out what's causing it I certainly don't write it that way it seems to translate to the document manager as well as final publishing that way. I don't want to monkey around too much trying to change it and screw something up. If you have any suggestions about what I could do let me know.

I live in SouthWestern Michigan, and enjoy traveling, guns, and Harley Davidsons, not always in that order.

Wishing On A Star reviews
This story deals with a curious interaction between "Earthling's" and Aliens spanning the years 1886 until 1890. If you're looking for the typical "Earth vs flying saucers, or "monsters walk among us," don't look here. The fact that these aliens are normal, is unusual enough, along with the fact that the story takes place in the late 1880's. Story undergoing revision
