About me

Gender MALE
Industry Education
Occupation Teacher
Introduction is a middle school teacher by day, husband/father by night, and author by accident. His first novel, Alchemy, was mostly written while recovering from a torn Achilles tendon (which is a cool injury when it happens on a football field, but not so cool when it occurs while dancing at an outdoor concert!) That injury, and a somewhat serendipitous meeting with best-selling author AJ Jacobs, inspired him to start pursuing his secret dream of being a writer. After many rejections from agents and publishers, he finally found someone foolish enough to publish his books…himself!
Favorite Movies The Fisher King, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, A Christmas Story, Three Kings...
