I’m happily married to a wonderful wife, Heather. I have two young children that I am very proud of. They keep me busy around the house but I don’t mind.
I have been working for the United States Postal Service since 1999. It’s a job and it gets crazy at times. I’m proud to work for them (most nights), but I have to admit. They aren’t the brightest of the bunch when it comes to certain things.
My interests vary, I love hockey and I am a die hard Ranger fan. Have been for almost 37 years. I love to read, watch television. I’m a gamer and play pc games when I’m bored and don’t feel like writing. I play with the kids when we have time besides being their Taxi service, driving them all over for dance and soccer and other various things.
I have always loved to write since I’ve been seven years old. I still have my first story I ever wrote in school. One day I’ll scan it and put it up here for the world to see.
I have a busy life at home. I work overnights and my wife works afternoons, so I sleep 3-5 hours if I’m lucky and then I have my kids the rest of the day. I find time to write while I’m at work. I write during my break and lunch hour. It works for me.
I read all types of books: Mysteries, Science Fiction, Paranormal, Fantasy. When i write though, I write mysteries. I write because I love to. I don’t expect to get rich. I am still figuring out the proper way to promote things. If you have any tips I’d be happy to hear them.
I usually do the twitter, facebook, blog promotions. I put my name out there on other blogs, offer to do interviews etc… People enjoy my stories and that’s all that matters for me.
If you ever have any questions feel free to contact me. I love to hear from people.
I can be found in numerous places around the web:
