About the Author

David V. Hesse was raised in Wisconsin and currently lives in Roswell Georgia with his wife, dogs and horses. He spends most of his free time and money from book sales at Rocco’s Pub in Jasper Georgia, sipping a brandy while telling anyone who will listen that he really is an author and a prevaricator of fallacious tales and a Fire Painter (Yaqui for story teller). The rest of his time is spent rescuing mustang horses and enjoying his grandchildren. He hopes you enjoy reading his rants and excerpts from his upcoming novels and anything else he says that is simpleminded and witless. All opinions and ideas are welcome.
