Rex Barton, a fiction writer , retired United States Army, Military Policemen, retired Law Enforcement, retired Mortgage Broker/Realtor. Most of the material in Rex’s books , comes from the incidents in his Military Police work and that of Law Enforcement. His autobiography, which is finished, but will not be released until late in 2017. That is all true-life experiences which embraced him and gave the necessary foundation to be a survivor. A protagonist. Quick to learn. Mentally and physically tough to take charge and fight for life. However, for everything good in Rex’s life there was failure too. Failure, heartbreak, sadness and need for God. He knows, that it was the failures that gave him growth and strength. Those failures were turned into successes and was all part of God’s grand scheme of things. The blue print of his very existence. His passion now is writing, due mostly to a brain tumor in 2014. Having been raised on a Ranch, Rex was always an avid Horsemen, and loves all animals, big and small because God, made them all. He later enjoyed golf, gardening, flying, surfing, race car driving, most all sports. Staying fit is important as eating for Rex but not always possible. The tumor and consequence chemo drugs has left him unsteady on his feet, so spending time with his wife and being the best Papa to our (4) grown children and (4) grandchildren, is top priority. Only one problem, they are many miles away. Not understanding what was growing inside his head, his need to move to a cooler climate was a necessity. Rex could no longer tolerate the heat of California. I always joked about buying a home with a view of the Ocean and Islands. He could sit in his rocking chair in his retirement years and not get much more active than that.Somehow, the tumor gave him a want to do more. Now his motivation is the next book.His Prayer is that the good Lord, enables him to live to write on to at least twenty more Fiction-Suspense-Action Thrillers. Maybe a Western or two as well. Who knows. His Prayer is you enjoy the read as much as I did the write.
