The Author was born in Tularosa, N.M. at the old Tulie Clinic, next to the old Tulie Café.
Born November 23, 1963, at 12:04 a.m. The very day after President Kennedy was killed. In fact, his mother says it was the news of the assassination that sent her into labor on the 22nd, while she was sitting there having a soda at the café with her sister, Helen, which sent her into labor!
His parents lived in Alamogordo. Theirs is a long love and hate story.
On his mother’s side, both of his great grandfathers had fought each other in The Battle of Round Mountain near Mescalero, as scribed into the annals of the Catholic Church at Tularosa.
His father served honorably in Korea, making four jumps with the U.S. Army Airborne. Each time fighting his way back below the 38th Parallel.
