He offers his fiction and unique perspective on sports issues in an entertaining style. He's sometimes colorful, often poignant, and never quite as funny as he thinks he is.
He loves his family, pet Yorkie, and two HD TV's, usually in that order.

Where are our Children is finally here. Where did this story come from?
I was around 12 or 13 when the infamous Atlanta Child Murders were taking place and Atlanta was at the epicenter of the country's thoughts and prayers. Wayne Williams was eventually caught and convicted of killing many of city's black children and young adults.
Fast forward to 2009, at the height of The Great Recession. I admit I was one of millions of Americans who were going their own financial and subsequent emotional crisis. Our awesome God, my loving family and focusing on writing the first draft of this novel helped me get through a very unsettling time in my life.
Nonetheless, It is a dark story that reflects the dark times I was going through in my life during each period.
Why offer this work as a serial instead of the traditonal novel format?
The first draft clocked in at 144,000 words. When I finally found the courage to pen the second draft five years later, the story grew in the telling. I decided not to hold myself back. If this tale were ever to be told, I had to let it pour out of me. The serial presentation was born. Nine episodes will be released to Smashwords or your e-book outlet of choice over the next couple of months.
Where are our Children rolls on to it's devastating climax.
Dr. Seth Dupree and Thomas Pepper witness racial strife in the streets of Atlanta firsthand. Friendships will be strained. And enemies will face off at long last.
