RAMBLE ON… a 420-themed novel

Tomorrow is international 420 Day and for those that partake of cannabis, you will find my novel RAMBLE ON… a 420-themed novel. It’s the story of Jessie Cayne, an Army brat, football star and small-time drug dealer in El Paso Texas during the 1980’s. Jessie becomes involved in a series of tense, dangerous action-packed incidents. 

It’s a story of Drugs, Sex, Rock N Roll and Murder.


I’ve added a series of classic rock songs to the book, so the reader can listen to these classic tunes as the story unfolds- try RAMBLE ON…, available only at AMAZON.
