I was born in rural Missouri to a working class family. My early life centered on family, the farm and school. Early on, my mother instilled in me a deep love of reading, which continues to this day. My mother always encouraged my writing, even as a child...when it was really bad.
Throughout a diverse career, I’ve been a soldier, a factory worker, a security officer, a bouncer, a lab technician, and most recently...a Corrections Officer. I love being a C.O. almost as much as I love writing. Ragnarok Rising gave me and outlet for both.
I’ve been married to my wife, Annette, for nineteen years. We have three great sons, Nathan, Nicholas and Noah. We also have an English Mastiff named Xander. He thinks he’s one of the boys, too.
When not playing C.O. or writing, I enjoy Geocaching, reading, riding my mountain bike, cooking, camping and most of all...spending time with my family.
