Salesman by day, writer by night. Air Force vet. My aim is to write books that are constructive for children and encourage them to read, even if reading is not their favorite thing. I live in the midwest with my wife and dog (he's a "senior" that we adopted from the local rescue shlelter). Lionel's Grand Adventure: Lionel and the Golden Rule is the first book in a series. It is my first book (reviews & feedback would be much appreciated). Lionel's back in Lionel Turns the Other Cheek. Check out his comical adventures as Lionel heads off to summer camp. Look for Lionel's Christmas Adventure this November on Amazon.
