After contemplating for years about publishing a website I have finally decided to do so. This site will be used to inform the citizens of Bell County about upcoming events, topics that are of great interest, and a place to ask questions. You will also find a secton pertaining to my published works and have a chance to place your order for them as well.

In order to partake in the forum you will need to register and complete a profile. Everyone that registers will have their membership approved by a moderator.
