A Short Bio for Author C. D. Tuttle
I grew up on a farm in central Oklahoma. With family members in the Landrush of 1891 and with the western history of Oklahoma I grew up with a keen interest in the old west. Writing about the old west came naturally. Dad was a prolific reader of western paperbacks. He always had stacks of books by Louis L'amour, Zane Grey and others around his big comfort chair. I read those too. He was an original subscriber to True West Magazine which I continue the subscription today. I have a complete set of all True West Magazines dating back to the first publication in 1954. My mother was a big influence on my reading and writing habits. She enrolled me in a book club when I was in the third grade. I read all sorts of books from children adventure stories, nature stories to science fiction. Mother encouraged reading and made sure I had about anything I wanted when it came to books, magazines and interactive publications such as Audubon's booklets. By the time I was twelve I was deeply into science fiction having read most of H G Wells writings and Edgar Rice Burroughs. The old fellow who ran the local newsstand would hold back a copy of Weird Tales and Amazing Stories for me every month. Consequently, I write in a number of genres from western fiction, science-fi, sword and sorcery to horror drama.
