Born in Minnesota, I have always had a love for writing, ever since childhood. I currently live in Wisconsin with my wife, Nicola, and our three children: DeAnna, Jhessica, and Michael. As well as our loveable dog Jaena (who allows US to sleep in HER bed it seems!) and our playful little kitty Aimee.
Our youngest son, Cameron, passed away in 2010 at the age of 3. And though we miss him more than words can possibly express, he has been my guide, my teacher, and my reason for writing. Thank you, my son, for being my angel, and guiding my fingers along the way. I hope you are as proud of me as I will forever be of you. I have done my best to pass on the lessons you taught to me.
I hope that each of you who reads my work enjoys it as much as I do in writing it for you. I've always had a love for books, particularly fantasy, and writing had always been a childhood dream of mine. For so long that dream was nothing more than a star twinkling high up in the sky, as so many childhood dreams seem to be. But it was always up there, waiting. All I needed to do was reach up.
As an author, if my work has you cheer for some of the characters, laugh with them, cry with them, love some of them or detest some of them, then I am pleased. After all, that is the goal of every author - to bring out the emotions of the reader.
I would love to hear from each of you. I invite you to rate and review my work, and if you'd like to reach me, please do so!
My best wishes, to each and every one of you, and remember that every dream is a star in the sky, and no dream is impossible to reach. The first step is easy: Just reach up.

The Ebook Writer, One Author's Journey
'To learn what's truly important in life, all one needs to do is look in the eyes of a small child - one who still looks upon the world through innocent eyes - who has not learned about lies, hatred, and selfishness, but knows only the emotion of love. It is they who are the real teachers. They are the ones we should strive to learn from, and be more like. If we could learn to see once more through innocent eyes, imagine how beautiful our world would become.'
