A native of Tennessee but no stranger to the Canyonlands of Southern Utah nor the Wind River mountain range of Wyoming.
Married high school sweetheart and father of four children.
Opened one of the first “head shops” in the state of Tennessee in the ’60s.
A convert to the LDS Church.
Love being in the Winds of Wyoming and the Canyons of Utah with my daughters and grandchildren.
I am often asked about my first name.
It is a First Nations name and means “one who wanders about the land.”
My sixth grandmother was “Cherokee of the Fifth Nation.”
Her name was Denta.
Writing helps me to feel what I cannot touch,
To understand a voice that speaks but cannot be heard.
Words help to almost have
What I will never hold.
Its language tries to capture what holds me
