Lots of people hope to one day write a book. Whether it's a memoir or an idea for a novel, they keep telling themselves, "one of these days I'm going to do it." Joe was one of these people. But unlike those who never "get around to it," he used the free time in retirement to pursue his "dream." To date, Joe has written four books and is working on the third book in his "Born series." To find out more about his work, see below. . . . .
BORN YESTERDAY is Joe's first book.
It is the spring of 1964. People in the small resort town of Pine Lake, Wisconsin are skittish when a stranger is found unconscious in the park. His head wounds suggest he had been severely beaten. He subsequently slips into a coma. With nothing in his pockets and no one coming forward, his identity remains a mystery.
Nurse Julia Parsons is enamored with the sleeping stranger and takes a special interest in his care. His waking only complicates matters when he has no recollection of who he is or what happened to him.
Overlooked clues send the couple on a journey across the state in search of his past.

Joe's facination with his adopted state lead to his desire to write a story about Nevada's early settlers.
Step back in time, and re-live the life and struggles
of a pioneer couple who settle in Northern Nevada.
In April of 1862, newly-weds John and Sara Graham leave St. Joe, Missouri as part of a wagon train, headed for California. For five months, they trudged across verdant prairies, snaked through narrow canyons, and made their way over treacherous mountain passes. They sloshed through mud, baked under a scorching sun, and endured all the elements Mother Nature threw at them.
Held up by an early winter, and weary from the grueling journey, the couple decided to settle along the Humboldt River, in Northern Nevada. Their struggles didn't end there, they'd only just begun.
