I grew up in Eastern Ohio. One of eight children. I love to read works of fiction, so it seemed that the natural course for me was to write. After moving around the country, I settled in Texas where I met the love of my life. From our combined family, we have seven children and seventeen grandchildren and one great granddaughter. I enjoy RVing, love the outdoors and meeting all kinds of people, where I get much of my inspiration and motivation. I now live with my wife in a tiny house on several acres of beautiful land covered with piney woods in East Texas, where I continue to be inspired to write.
