Being raised in the mountains of North Carolina had a special influence on me. The dreams that invented these stories started there. Even at an early age, being all of six, my teachers saw the capacity in me to create stories with such depth - that they seemed to marvel at the tales which I wrote for my class assignments. While my devotion to and inspiration for writing continued to be strong through my teen age years, there was a force equally strong bearing it's influence. Parents! My Father in particular. Who was, understandably, not "over the moon" with the idea of his son pursuing a career as perilous and uncertain as a writer.
And so, finally I embarked on a financial career. With my bachelor's degree in accounting, I've spent the majority of my Adult life in both the retail and manufacturing industries. But I never stopped writing. Because that's what and who I am.
There is no greater joy I've found on this earth than to create characters with true and genuine emotions, feel their heartbeat through every word I write; their trails, their hopes and ambitions; to breathe life into their eyes and see their souls become one with me and the reader.
It's my hope that when someone picks up my stories and reads the full weight of them, that somehow I've affected change in their lives, brought them to places they could never have imagined before, and moved them to believe in humanity again - to go out into the world and create "goodwill towards all".
