A typical day for me involves two seasons of my annual life. The first season is dictated by the school year, during which I work full-time as an aide for more than one special needs classroom. I also moonlight as a valet for a private company hired for many private events. At one such event Mel Gibson was present. At another Laura Bush. I have driven nearly every modern car available for purchase, the most exotic has been a Ferrari. The other season I separate my year into is summer, during which I live in a mountain town in Colorado and spend my days repairing and modifying my XJ, fishing, shed hunting, rock hounding, and exploring mining sites from the old west. I write my stories year round as time allows. Colorado and the old west inspire my stories about the High Frontier.
