Growing up in the Midwest was a privilege, having two great parents was an honor. Serving my country during Vietnam, when America lost the right to draft its children, was a responsibility all Americans need to take seriously. Being in possession of an MBA led me into banking and business. The former a good fit, the latter an exercise in trial and tribulation. Life revealed to me the people who populate our world. These inhabitants wear many different hats and possess a wide range of abilities.

From these highs and lows came the stories which I am now publishing. All of my books have references to my experiences and social connections.

These books challenge conventional thinking but are grounded in reality.

A Small Conversation

One of my good friends, a lady Young Adult writer, rides today's winds of social change on her finely woven tapestry of moderate liberalism. Myself, I'm not so much riding as being tossed about by the confusing seas of modern conservative warfare.

Our conversations, unlike those of our congressional peers, are not sharply worded tweets or divisive conjugations of otherwise unintelligible syntax. R Read more of this blog post »

All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque
I see how peoples are set against one another, and in silence, unknowingly, foolishly, obediently, innocently slay one another. I see that the keenest brains of the world invent weapons and words to make it yet more refined and enduring.
