He was married with two children, but his wife left, taking the kids with her due to his military service and constant relocating. While entering other relationships for the wrong reasons and looking for "that someone or some thing," he finally realized what he was missing.
His relationship with God grew over the years. While waiting for God to work a miracle in his life, he's had plenty of "learning" experiences.

I love to write stories in different genres that paint you a picture, take you places you wouldn't ordinarily be able to go, and make you carry the characters in your heart and mind for years to come, just as I experienced when I created them. If a smile shines upon your face, a lesson is learned, and you wanted to sit down again and turn another page, then I am happy. If you recommend it to someone...I'm ecstatic!
Thank you for your support and enthusiasm in my writing, and for your honest reviews. I read all my emails and if you contact me via my website, I will write back.
