About Me
Retired police officer living in central Florida with my high school sweetheart. We have two sons, one grandson and two granddaughters. We also have two cats; chrissy, a big, fat, very affectionate grey cat, and Gabby, a cat I rescued the day before she was scheduled to be put down. We enjoy kayaking, snorkeling, and spending time with our children and grandchildren. I have had 7 short stories published, 2 of them in an anthology commemorating the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11th.
Type of Writer
I tend to edit as I write which is a habit I'm working hard to break.
Writing Style
Still trying to figure that out.
I enjoy woodworking, cooking gourmet meals, and I'm an accomplished cake decorator. Until a couple of years ago, I was a triathlete. I enjoy long bicycle rides, kayaking on the Indian River or on the inland waterways in Florida.
