Backwoods

Biography

I am happily married to my beautiful wife. I am also a proud father of four wonderful girls and one goofy, floppy-faced pooch. I am the author of 'Unremembered', 'Off Grid', ‘Stronghold’ and 'Seven Years (Tales from the Backwoods-Story #1)'. Currently, I am working on the third story in the Off Grid Series titled 'This Land We Call Home', as well as an autobiography titled 'A Father's Tears'.

I look forward to becoming one of your favorite storytellers. Thank you kindly, ~Backwoods~

Smashwords Interview

First off, is it true that you live "Off The Grid"?
It surely is. I live back in the woods and I'd have it no other way. I have found that life holds a much deeper meaning without the chaos and nonsense that fills our day-to-day lives. Most people hear 'Off Grid' and they jump to drastic ideas of life in a little grass hut and running around in buckskin clothing. In reality, well my reality anyhow, it is not all that different. I do have a wood-burning stove in place of a television, but I have never lost reception with it. We have a generator for electricity when it is needed. We have propane (and propane accessories) for refrigeration, heat and lighting. We listen to the radio and we poop in a toilet.

The main thing that separates my world from yours is, well, I don't have to deal with the idiots. Where I live, people wave hands instead of fingers. If your car breaks down, the next car will likely stop to see if you need assistance. Where I grew up you can't go shopping without someone squeezing their way by in a hurry or cutting you off in the parking lot. The peaceful serenity of the woods seems to have an effect on people that you can't truly understand until you see it first hand.
When did you first start writing?
"Unremembered" was my first story, which I wrote some twenty years ago as a teenager. I dug it up in late 2012, revised and published it. I officially began my career as a fiction writer in January of 2013.
