As the popularity of my poetry grew, radio stations around the country began to produce dramatic readings of these works, some with beautiful background orchestration.
In 2007, I was stunned one day to be contacted by country music superstar Michael Martin Murphey, who had read "A Soldier's Christmas" on stage as part of his national Cowboy Christmas tour. As he explained... "the crowd went wild."
This began a collaboration that resulted in "A Soldier's Christmas" being produced by Michael Martin Murphey, airing on country music radio nationwide with all proceeds going to charities that support US troops.
It has been an honor to work with Mr. Murphey, whom I has come to know as a friend, a genuine patriot, a real cowboy and one hell of a great American.
