I am a father to five and a grandfather to twice more which leads me to being a bit of a story teller. I am happily married to my wife Mary who is also my best friend and co-editor of the Reeshard and The Great Parish Swamp series. I try to live a simple quiet life in Statesville, North Carolina and enjoy a bit of woodworking whenever time permits.
My interests vary greatly but include writing, creative design, and watching NASCAR Racing or NFL Football. I also enjoy telling tall tales to the grandkids or just spending some quiet time with my wife.
I am also the author and creator of the new Read, Recognize, and Remember books, titled The Adventures of Ernie I Saw. Designed with beginning readers in mind, read, recognize and remember books give children the confidence and ability to read on their own in no time at all. I have also written poetic verse and am now working on a few more with the intent on having a collection published in the near future.
