My daughters thought I was born when dinosaurs roamed the earth, but I am not quite that old. I am old enough to remember televisions being black and white and having only one phone in the house and it was attached to the wall with a rotary dial.
I was born and raised in Texas in 1961 and much of that time was spent in a small town outside of Fort Worth named Cleburne. I was raised by a single mom who later married a wonderful man. As a student I made good grades, played sports and was on the debate team. While in High School I fell in love and later married Amy, who I am still married to after 38 years. We have two daughters who have given us three wonderful grandchildren.
My family will tell you that my resume says I have done it all, which is not completely true. I was raised working in our flower shops, then went to work for a Funeral Home, a freight company, driving a limo, a photographer and anything else that could provide a living and get me through college.
I was a pastor for ten years, after graduating from Seminary, and then started a ministry taking people overseas on mission trips. I have remained active in my church and in ministry.
Then I owned a construction company specializing in rebuilding apartments and homes destroyed by fire. When not rebuilding from fires, we built homes and did commercial and residential remodeling. After much consideration I closed my company and I returned to a school environment as a teacher. I have always had a passion to help young people be successful and I currently teach 8th Grade Honors English and High School business classes in a school in Garland, TX.
I have always enjoyed reading and every year set a goal of reading fifty books, unfortunately I end up reading only around forty. I also love to travel. I have been blessed enough to have traveled in Europe, South America, Central America and Asia. Cooking and sailing are the last of my passions, consuming the time that I am not writing.
