Biography

I'm a storyteller and anyone who knows me knows I love to tell stories. I believe we express who we are and where we come from culturally, personally and spiritually through the tales we tell. Born in southern Oklahoma, I married a girl from southwest Iowa, and we settled in Nebraska almost twenty years ago. I am an advertising and marketing consultant working in radio, digital and television sales. My biggest struggle in producing a fully completed book is my lifetime struggle with a mild level of dyslexia. Fortunately my wonderfully patient and supportive wife Cindy can read my intent in spite of the spelling and grammatical errors. I could not have done this without her. We have one son, Izaac, of whom we are very proud. I'm the third of four kids, and blessed to be a part of a large, loving and supportive family. I have more stories to tell, so stay tuned.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I remember falling into Tolkien's Hobbit world head first. I loved Strider and the Elves. I was fascinated by his ability to create whole worlds with back story and mythology, cultures and rivalry within the larger story of the knight on a quest. Those were the largest books I had ever read and I couldn't get enough of it.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
My first writing experiences were poetry. I still get ideas and my natural expression is a poem. Over the years I've learned to write stories. The first story I every wrote was a short story for a college English class. It was a silly little thing call "An Story Due Thursday". The thing was, every student had to read each story submitted and write a review. Everyone like my story and found the humor in it, but because my spelling was bad and grammar sloppy the story got a poor grade.
That has always been my struggle. I have a mild form of dyslexia and no matter how hard I try or how many time I read what I've written, there will be errors. Thank God for my wife Cindy. She's able to correct and edit without making me feel foolish or stupid
