I welcome you to my web site!
My goal is to give you information about myself and my current writing endeavors, the books I have published as well as the ones in the works, where you can buy my books, a way to contact me with your questions, and various links to book sites.
My first book’s, “Cover Your Nut” - Practical Accounting in Plain English for the Real world, was written for managers with limited accounting experience as a guide for better understanding of their own Financial Statements. Additional information about my business books, both published and in the works, can be seen in the “Bud’s Business Books” link.
Since my book “Cover Your Nut” I have published the following additional books:
“Gibbon’s Secrets” - A boy’s memories of the 40′s. Gibbon’s Secrets is a historical fiction written about a boy growing up in a small town during World War II and is the first in my life series books. I am sharing memories of the home front during World War II as well as fictional happenings relative to that time frame. This journey back to another time in our history will give the reader a glimpse of how it was back then. I tried to make this book the type you would enjoy reading while curled up in a chair with either a light rain or snow falling outside.
“Back in the Day” – High School, Summers in between, and Four Years in the Navy. Back in the Day, the second book in my life series, will cover the ten year period from 1945 to 1955. I will share a young man’s historical fiction experiences throughout high school, summers in-between, and four years in the Navy. These experiences and relationships start from growing up in a small town (Curtis) in Nebraska, where a healthy atmosphere was common in the 1950′s, and end up by sharing the experiences of four years in the U.S. Navy. I have elected to classify the incidents and individual characters in this story as historical fiction to allow the sharing of my recollection of the content and order. The dialogues used throughout the story are the types of conversations remembered by me during that particular time frame.
“The Business Plan and Beyond” - Beginner’s Guide Book is my second business book written as a reference book for individuals wanting to start their own business. This Beginner’s Guide Book is a tool that will help individuals going through their preparatory stages of planning a new business and is patterned after the Lincoln SCORE workshop, “What’s Involved in Starting a Small Business?” with individual presenters sharing their knowledge through a chapter in the book. The subjects covered include; Business Development, General Accounting, Legal, Financing, Insurance, Government, and Leadership.
“Mill Park Mystery” - Nebraska to Nuremberg is my first mystery and the information in the book is fictional and general in nature; intended for enjoyment purposes only. This is a fictional mystery and the background of individuals or places has been created out of the authors mind and the similarity to actual individuals or some of the places is coincidental. I have visited many of the places mentioned in the book and therefore found it most enjoyable to share and utilize them as part of the mystery.
