Texas Legacy is an epic saga spanning three books that touch the spirit of American adventure in colonial Texas as it follows two ambitious young men -- one white and one black -- the women they love and the families they raise.  Jeff and Will face the difficulties of a raw frontier, deal with the issues of slavery and freedom and building new lives, homes and dreams along with their new country.  The exciting but turbulent times result in Will and Jeff fighting to save their families and everything they've worked for on two fronts -- a war with Mexico for Texas' independence, a war with the Comanches for survival and ultimately, a war that divides neighbors and the entire country.

Trail of Hope








The Littlest Hero


"The Littlest Hero" is not the grandiose story of nation building. It is the uplifting story of a young man -- a little man in physical stature, but with a big heart who wants to earn respect and discover his destiny. Stub Lebeaux, a young dwarf, leaves his home and somewhat unconventional family, and soon learns what life, loyalty, courage under fire and the misery of war is all about. Follow the adventures of this exceptional young man as he earns respect and finds his destiny in frontier Texas during the revolutionary war for independence. Meet Stub LeBeaux, a man of small stature who was big enough to rub shoulders with the giants of Texas history.
