About Me.

The journey of becoming an author has been elusive and filled with much doubt, but I've always written. Along the way, I have been blessed with so many rich life experiences, from my time in the military to teaching high school, and becoming 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 urgency and freedom.
