Ready for 2020 to be over? Looking for a new activity for 2021?


Ready for 2020 to be over? 

Looking for a new activity for 2021?

You came to the right place

The last couple of months I have been hard at work researching and re-creating the Oak Springs of the first couple of decades of the 20th Century.

New, original stories, continuing the Background/Founding years of my original novel, “Back to the Homeplace,” will be published each Friday, beginning January 8, for Patrons of my stories on

For more than two years, I have been curating my earlier stories on in chronological order for my Patrons, each Wednesday and Friday. It has been a fun experience to re-live the lives of all those many characters in the latter half of the 1800s, in the southern Missouri Ozarks fictional Oak Creek Valley. They have included The Kings of Oak Springs, McDonald Tales, Meet the Folks, and Bevins Tales stories, among others. We have chronicled the births, marriages, lives, and deaths of the entire community of Oak Springs and the surrounding rural Oak Creek Valley.  

What is a Patron, you ask? Each Patron pays one dollar per month. In 2021, that one dollar a month will get you exclusive, never before published, original stories each Friday, at least four each month, carrying our stories into the 20th Century, starting with 1903. Each story runs 1200-1600 words. A relatively short read, but enough to be meaningful and keep you involved in the lives of our continuing characters. There is an opportunity to comment on each story, and I encourage it. We have had great comments throughout the past year and more. I hope you will join us.

In fact, there are two episodes yet this year, 1901 and 1902, before we take a brief holiday pause and resume with new, original, never before published stories on Friday, January 8, 2021.

Join us today, to get immediate access to all those stories.
