I was born in Norwood, MA in 1950 and moved to Lake Havasu City, AZ in 1977. I started London Bridge Linens (Waterbed Linens) in 1979 and sold it 1983 and retired to the mountains to spend time with our new daughter. In 1986 I opened a motorcycle shop, Doctor Dirts and sold it in 2005 to care for my wife of 34 years who was battling cancer. I wrote some of these stories while caring for her and struggling with my own depression. In 2009 I met my new wife Carolyn, fell in love and got married once more. I retired in 2012 and stay active in Church. I have no formal training in writing yet I feel compelled to put to paper what is in my heart.
