Larry and his wife live on a small ranch south of Bellevue, Idaho where they keep busy with the daily chores associated with their three horses and a hardware store they own in Hailey. The horses are more the interest of his wife but Larry enjoys fixing everything they break. His real interest, however, is vintage airplanes; things with big round engines and tail wheels. Since those are a little hard to come by, Larry settled for a Cessna 170 which is a little less extravagant but still retains the tail wheel. He realized early on that besides his interest in flying, he also has a creative itch that needed to be scratched from time to time. This has manifested itself in such things as metalworking, painting, stained glass, wood working, and architectural design. When he finally got the urge to write, he started with some short stories and even some poetry. Eventually, he started writing about his younger days flying skydivers all over the Mountain West in a Cessna 180. As everyone knows, if you put two pilots in a room together they’ll tell stories to each other as long as you let’em. That’s how it went with Larry but he was the only pilot in the room so he just wrote story after story and put them all in a book so his children and some of his friends would know what he was up to all those years. Writing that book helped Larry understand that he enjoyed writing so he pursued other writing ventures which have allowed him to feed his thirst for Sci-Fi and historical events. Now, that may seem odd to have those two things mentioned in the same sentence, but then again … that’s Larry. You can read Larry's exclusive interview here on our blog!
