About the Author

Born in the mid-sixties, I grew up with a house full of books. They ones I liked had facts in them like the dictionary or encyclopedia. For some reason listening to what someone else thought made me nuts. One day I picked up a science fiction paperback and discovered a boy like me, one who didn't belong here. That feeling generated by ADDHD is common among us so afflicted, but there was no word in my extensive vocabulary to deal with it. I did however find kinship in those stories and often dreamed of a world where my abnormal was seen as a benefit. Not among children it isn't. I was laughed at once for using microscopic in a conversation. I had no choice but to render my taunters pointless wanderers in the vast desert of stupid and walked off.

Fast-forward 40 years to the middle of my current career as a crime scene photographer for the LAPD. I was chomping at the bit for something fulfilling to do. I read a few self-help books, and it dawned on me that I was a storyteller. "What use is that?" I floated to God. "Christ was pretty good at it," quietly the answer floated back. Suddenly I realized that to communicate took facts yes but to touch another heart took story. After an 8 year journey with the help of Mike Foley of Writers Review and Laura Taylor, I was able to go from average to awesome. I thank both for helping me turn pro. My wife whom I met at a writers meeting encouraged and left me alone while I pursued this.
