Winston Churchill


I have not decided whether to call myself a Kansanista, Kansanite, or Kansatonian. But I am a life long Kansan and I love the state and the people in it. (well pretty much)

I love the stories that have been forgotten or just almost lost about Kansas and Kansans. As you are aware my first history book was Kansas Oddities. Well I have a lot more stories to tell. So here comes book number two.


The number one question that I have had since my first book came out is “when are you going to do another one?” Well, right now. I was very fortunate to have my forward on KANSAS ODDITIES written by Marci Penner. On ECCENTRIC KANSAS my forward has been done by Rebecca Tanner. I am tickled to be honored by both women who care so much about Kansas and Kansas History to have them contribute to my books.

ECCENTRIC KANSAS will come out on November 11, 2019. Armistice Day and my mothers birthday. This is a bit late in the gift selling season but you will be able to order from,, and it will be in book sellers all over the state. I will put out a list when I get the distribution results.

My stories have all but been forgotten and it is my mission to find them and save them. Many times the communities and even families have not heard about the stories. Some are only known within communities and not much further.

If you want to read about; Iola’s Mad Bomber, The nations first mass murder of modern times in Winfield. Fatty Arbuckle, Cattle Kate. You will find out about one of the most popular stationary balers, the Auto-Fedan. The Bailor Tractor built in Atchison. The first automobile offered for sale west of the Mississippi River. Or the Little Blue Books, and much more.

What is even better is that I have already submitted the paperwork for book three. Sales of ECCENTRIC KANSAS will determine when I get started on the next book.

And if you think that I am running short of stories, think again? I get more ideas for stories everyday. So I am in the process of creating a syndicated radio program that will be put on radio stations all over the state called TALES OF KANSAS.

I am working with some really great people on the production of this program. What I need is one or two main sponsors that can get this all going. If you are a company or know of someone who wants their message heard all over the region on multiple radio stations, this is a ground floor opportunity. There is a good chance that the program will not only be heard in Kansas but also in the region.

I want to thank all of my supporters that purchased KANSAS ODDITIES and hope that you all will order ECCENTRIC KANSAS also. And thanks to the papers, facebook, and email readers that support my weekly opinion column. I really enjoy meeting so many people that care about Kansas and our country.

If you want to be a sponsor of TALES OF KANSAS or want to put my books and other History Press books into your store contact me.

    Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any tips for newbie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting
    my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!

      I have ideas pop into my head all of the time. One time that I needed to get a piece out and did not have a clue and I wrote about not having a clue what to write. A try and keep pieces stacked up so I am not rushed. I have papers that need the piece on a deadline weekly. I also read a lot and keep track of a lot of things going on.
