About Me

Behind the Words

Who am I? That is a great question and one that is very hard to answer. I am a father; I am a husband, I am a stranger, I am a friend, and I am a writer.

Let's just say I've always had a passion for writing and still do. Back in grade school, I remember a dear friend handing me a spiral notebook and saying, "Start a story." So the entire next class period, instead of paying attention to the teacher and the day's studies, I was creating elaborate, wondrous tales. I would pass that notebook back to my friend, and he would continue where I left off. When I got into high school, it wasn't long before I found myself in creative writing. Several of my stories, the teacher would hand them back and ask me when the sequel was coming out. I usually took that as just a method of positive reinforcement, but something about stuck. Years later, having four kids who love being read to and love to read, and I found my self still writing stories in my free time, it dawned on me. I love writing. I found what I want to do the rest of my life.

I reside in a small town in northern Oregon, with my beautiful, encouraging wife, four beautiful book-loving children, two snoring dogs loudly, and a stuck-up cat. I've found my calling, and I hope it brings you as much pleasure as it does me.

I live by the wise words of Ernest Hemingway: "for a true writer each (work) should be a new beginning where he tries again for something that is beyond attainment.” I put everything I have into each piece I work on and - whether it be commercial, artistic, marketing, or journalistic - I give it my all.

When you are describing, a shape, or sound, or tint; Don't state the matter plainly, but put it in a hint; And learn to look at all things, with a sort of mental squint"
