About Me

Who Am I?

Well, considering this is available to anyone and everyone, I will keep it somewhat limited.  I am a computer Programmer by day, and a writer by night.


Writing young adult novels, or any novels, was never on my bucket list, but life can throw some interesting twists at us.  So, here I am, with six completed teen fiction books, several others in various stages of development and at least ten more ideas in the queue.

What Life Is About

Aside from my job and my writing habit, I have a family.  My wife and I have been together for just under 25 years, dating six of those before we were married.  We have four wonderful children, and spend a lot of time with them.  American Heritage Girls and Trail Life USA are an important part of their lives, thus ours as well.


Being that we live in Alaska, we spend a good deal of time in the outdoors.  We camp, fish, want to hunt, hike and whatever else suits our fancy. Winter in Alaska is beautiful!

Why I Write...

I began writing after having a dream that provided me the inspiration for Fourth Birth, along with another story that is not yet complete.  I love writing, which makes this truly a labor of love.


My sincerest hope is that my stories spark your imagination, and entertain you.  That is what a novel is all about, after all.


Of course, I wouldn't mind making a little money at some point.  Those kinds of incentives always make it a little easier to work, though I'll do it, even without the money.  :)
