That's me, the handsome guy in the picture to your left. I was born in Seattle, Washington, and lived there for three days until my mother recovered enough to move us home to Renton. Forty-seven years later, my blushing bride (That's her in the picture. Isn't she adorable?) and I moved across the state to the beautiful town of Spokane, where we live with our only remaining child, Copper the Wonder Poodle. 

     Here are a few additional and ridiculously compelling details about me: I have five sons, one daughter, and 8 grand-kids (so far); I am a born-again believer in Jesus Christ; I love to fish, even though I totally suck at it; My boat's name is The Big Bobber, but I call him Bob for short; I love cookies - they are the perfect food; I love eating and I love cooking, but mostly I love eating other people's cooking; I drove truck for 22 years; now I work for Hospice of Spokane as a Hospice Nurse's Aid - it's often messier than driving, but more satisfying at the end of the day; I don't write Christian novels, but all my books are Christ-honoring.

That's about it. If you want to know more, you will have to contact me.
