In most of my writing I like to look for the extraordinary in the ordinary, maybe even a little magic. Then I add a dash of humor, because life shouldn’t be so serious ( Although I do enjoy throwing in the horrific, or heavily sarcastic, villian now and again, because that’s just fun).
I live in Pennsylvania with the love of my life, and wildly imaginative twin daughters.

There are frustrations, but most of them are due to only having 24 hours in a day and so many more stories I want to write. Thank you for the question, Brian!(less)

Quitting the Day Job

I wasn’t ready to write this post. It’s still surreal to me after 16 years, but it seems it’s time. That, or people seem to think I’ve retired, and that’s a long way away for me.
