I started writing when he was in seventh grade. With my overactive imagination, I wrote a short story for a class that was later printed in the local paper. It was the first thing in my life that I was extremely proud of. My teacher, Mrs. Scott, saw my talent and encouraged me to continue to write. I did just that for a couple of years but like most kids found interest in other things. After setting aside my love of writing and drawing as a teen, I returned to it as a young man and started writing stories and creating comic book characters. Using my children, loved ones, and friends as inspiration, I have created over a hundred characters and stories that I still hope to publish. I’ve always considered myself more of a creator than a writer, so I spent two decades looking for a collaborator and in 2017 I found not one but two people willing to write with me. After several collaborations with Charles Little Jr and Tammy Dale, I feel like he can finally write on my own. I am grateful for everything I have learned from them and others, and I set out to write the second and third novels in the Sheriff Carter Link series. I plan to continue on with the novels I have started along with creating new stories and characters. I also hope that someday I can help others with their dreams of becoming published authors.
