I was born and raised in South Charleston, WV.  A backward hillbilly (even city boys in WV are a little backward back before the internet and cable TV) that had my eyes opened after attending the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.  Afterward, I went straight to pilot training and on to a career in the Air Force.  I’ve been a military pilot my entire adult life, 12.5 years active duty Air Force and the last 16 in the Air Force Reserve.  I fly the KC-135 Stratotanker, an air refueler.  I’ve been lucky enough to travel all over the world, but there are still a lot of places I’d like to visit.I’ve been married to my best friend for more than 20 years, and have 4 talented children, and we’ve been living in Indiana since 1999.

I have a B.S. in Economics, nothing to do with writing, at least not directly.  I’ve been doing stories in my head for years and finally decided to start writing them down and fleshing them out.  Second best decision I ever made, after marrying my wife. (Wife faction ++)

I’ve been writing in earnest for about 7 years, but haven’t published anything yet, although I’ve finished two novels and working on two others.  I’m trying to chronicle that effort here.  When I’m not writing, I am probably checking my twitterfeed or facebook, listening to music or reading a blog. I’ve been drawing in pastel chalk and pencil and hope to do a lot more.  I love to read SF, Mystery, or Urban Fantasy, and have started training for a mini-marathon.  I’m in the throws of an agent hunt. Wish me luck!
