Born 1946, Chandler OK; US Army, Vietnam, 1968-69; Ph.D. University of Kansas, 1976; current residence: Tokyo, Japan.

Author of two books of family history: "North of Deep Fork: An Oklahoma Farm Family in Hard Times," which deals with Lincoln County; and "The Fate of Bones: Adventures in Family History," which follows the Pound/Pounds family from Virginia in the mid-1600s to Oklahoma at the start of WWII. Available from Amazon.

In 2015 I published a group of non-fiction stories about early-day killings in Lincoln Co. Oklahoma called "The Lonesome Death of Billie Grayson." It was available on Amazon.com but is now out of print. At the moment, I am writing new stories for a second edition.

I run a Lincoln County Oklahoma website at http://oakgrove-pleasantridge.blogspot.jp. The Table of Contents for the Billie Grayson book is posted there. And I've made a parallel website for McCorkle Cemetery in Lincoln Co. because the FAG contributor who controls most of the sites there suffers from terminal inertia: http://mccorklecem.blogspot.jp/.

My sister and I have just edited our mother's autobiography, "A Tale That Is Told" by Opal Earp Pounds, available as an ebook on SmashWords or in print on Amazon.
