About Me
Retired Research Forester, married to my best friend, father/step-father of five, grandfather of six (including 3-yr-old twins), and ne'er-do-well wallflower. I spent most of my life writing non-fiction articles. Writing now for pure pleasure.
Type of Writer
I consider myself a short-story writer in multiple genres, though I dabble in poetry and am writing a Christian devotional.
Writing Style
Conversational style using loose sentence structure when writing fiction. Much stricter structure when writing non-fiction.
Spending time with my family, day-dates with my sweetheart, game night with friends, sitting by a warm fire just contemplating.
