Author has written 8 stories for Mystery, Fantasy, Romance, Thriller, General, and Essay.

I'm a husband, a writer, and a musician, devoted to worshiping Jesus Christ in each area of my life. After my wonderful wife, my greatest loves are the teenagers I work with, my daily digest of classic and contemporary literature, and the copious amounts of coffee I consume every day. I also enjoy role-playing videogames and baseball, and spend lots of time wrestling with the lab/shepherd puppy who lives with us yet refuses to pay rent.

Stories are not subject to the imposition of such questions as true or false, fact or fiction. Stories are realities lived and believed. They are true.
