Author has written 36 stories for Daniel Boone.

Dear Readers,

I am a career teacher who has loved Mingo for more than forty-four years. I am also fond of all the characters appearing on the Daniel Boone show. I began writing fanfiction in March of 2007, and have been hooked ever since. I tend to write with a specific moral/religious slant rather like the show. I make no apologies for this. Many of my stories have developed because I pondered an episode of the TV show.

I hope that you like reading my stories, or at the least you find them entertaining and thought-provoking. Most of my work posted here is around 15 pages in length. I try really hard to choose the correct rating, and hope that you find my choices erring on the side of caution.
