Truman Dayon Godwin
I was born in Vernon, Texas in 1931. After graduating from Lubbock High School in 1948, I attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas where I majored in Electrical Engineering and Economics. I also studied British Literature and Business Law at the University of Texas. I’m a Korean War veteran, and I was in the Telecommunications business for 52 years before retiring. I’m married, have six children and ten grandchildren. My favorite diversion is golf. My published works include:  THE HERITAGE OF LUKE, 666, and THE END OF THE ROW; a book of short stories, THE TREASURE OF CHAMA VALLEY; a book of poetry, BEYOND THE HEDGEROWS; other miscellaneous magazine publications.


I have received the rights back to some of my books, so I have re-released them on my own and published them in Kindle and eBook editions also.  Some of them I'm changing the names and covers.  Find all of my books listed below:


Old Friends and Memories
Old Friends and Memories

One of the joys of growing older is the opportunity to meet another  older person, or to observe two older people for the first time. Often  such meetings are experienced with a mutual aura that both deserve  respect and admiration because of the roads they have traveled and the  experiences they’ve had. Often nothing is said in remembrance of the  past: there might be only a handshake, a warm greeting, and sparkling  eyes that convey a clear understanding of their unique brotherhood.  Younger people who witness such meetings might interpret the event as  simplistic and unrevealing, when actually it is a treasure of human  communication and a tribute to the spiritual nature of man. It was such a  special friend of mine who requested copies of my poetry that were  meaningful to him. In providing these for him, I found it convenient to  furnish a master copy of all my life’s work in poetry, which is the  contents of this book. Finally, I decided to make this work available to  any others who enjoy reading poetry.

The Cockeyed Bull and the Perky Poodle
The Cockeyed Bull and The Perky Poodle


This book is more than a collection. It is a composite of "customer appreciation." I have put together a number of short stories from my "reader feedback" information, in which readers have expressed their preference for some of my previously published stories. Then I have added a number of newly written, never before published stories, which I believe readers will find as entertaining as the favorites they have shared with me. I invite you to relax and enjoy my latest book of short stories.

Roosevelt's Gold and Rattlesnakes and 24 Other Short Stories

Roosevelt's Gold and Rattlesnakes and 24 Other Short Stories

This book is a revision of and update for one of my previous novels  entitled THE TREASURE OF CHAMA VALLEY. Secret loves, unrecognized  prejudices, illogical fears, and crying needs are often hidden in human  hearts and minds In each person, these feelings and emotions exist  simultaneously with an untested potential for cowardice or heroism in  the face of adversity. Whether an unexpected problem is major or minor  makes no difference to one obsessed with these crippling attributes, the  reaction will usually be weak and ineffective and quite possibly make  matters worse. On the other hand, there are some who find extra strength  and courage to deal heroically with circumstances that seem impossible  to resolve. Whether discouraged to the point of despair or inspired to  persevere, there is a story to tell for each one of them. It has been my  pleasure to delve into the hearts and minds of my characters and  present to my readers a variety of people and situations that will both  surprise them and entertain them.


The Pursuit of Inspiration

The Pursuit of Inspiration

INSPIRATION! A feeling that comes upon us, usually without  solicitation, and which can influence our moods and behavior in  mysterious ways. They can force a change in habits, or a re-evaluation  of values, or the achievement of extraordinary goals. Whether  intentionally used or not, inspirations are driving forces in our lives  that are always available to us in one form or another.
