David-JHello, and welcome to my website. Here you will find information about my award-winning historical novels set in the American West, eco-regenerative ranching experiments at Sylvan Dale Ranch in Colorado, and new models of funding for cutting edge conservation practices.  Check out my Beef, Books and Boots blog where I muse on the topics of writing, grass fed beef, conserving the beautiful front range of the Rocky Mountains, and the future of ranching.  Looking for a lively presentation for your book club, service organization school or event?
