As I spread the word on "The Third Miracle," I'm also developing my third nonfiction book and writing for MSNBC.com, covering business, travel, and health. Somewhere on that list, I should add: napping.
I'm the coauthor of "Amped: A Soldier’s Race for Gold in the Shadow of War" (Wiley, 2008). Until 2006, when I chose to try to become an author ("try" being a purposely selected word), I was a Denver Post reporter, earning seven national writing awards (from investigative journalism to humor pieces.) I began my journalism career at the Nashville Banner, covering the police beat and temporarily perfecting my southern accent. (That's gone.) I have one daughter, Andrea, a college student. I live in Denver, Colorado with my wife, Nancy.
