About Me.

As a child, reading was my escape and writers were my heroes.  As an adult, I have been blessed with so many rich life experiences to fuel the worlds and characters in my writing from my time and travels in the military to being a stay at home dad.  Now that my daughters are grown, I have the gift of time, space, and wisdom to continue my writing journey with more devotion and liberation.  I look forward to publishing my latest novel soon and appreciate your interest in my writing.
