Welcome to the Westover Writes blog. In addition to some basic information about me, you will also find various writings and musings about things that interest me... my new book, Defensive Tactics, that will be in stores August of 2010, book reviews, gospel subjects, interesting experiences, Missouri LDS Church History sites, etc.
I hope you enjoy your time on the blog and return often to see what I may be rambling about.
My wife and I have lived in small town, rural Missouri for 12 years and have 4 entertaining and wonderful children. I never expected to be living on a farm with chickens, cows, kittens and a dog. The kids love 'em.
My life revolves around spending time with my family. Being a father and a husband are the most important things I can concentrate my time on and I enjoy it.
I published my first novel, DEFENSIVE TACTICS, in August 2010.
My second novel, Crater Lake: Battle for Wizard Island is under contract with Cedar Fort Publishing and should be released in the Spring of 2012.
