I was born in Atlanta, Georgia in the early seventies. A lot of boring years passed and I eventually
graduated high school and enlisted in the U.S. Army where I repaired helicopter engines. I was honorably
discharged three years later and held menial jobs in warehouses, construction, and fast-food before
becoming a Firefighter/EMT which I enjoyed for several years. I taught myself computer programming and
began a career working in climate-controlled offices with a better salary. Now that I've manipulated bits
and bytes for nearly fifteen years, I'm trying to break into the world of the novelist. My first short
story was published in Static Movement and I have appeared in Shroud Magazine. I continue to read and write
daily. I live in Rome, GA with my angelic wife and daughter. I have three sons from a previous marriage
who make me extremely proud. We have a dog and a cat. I doubt I'll ever become rich from writing, but I hope
my readers will enjoy what I create. Thanks for stopping by.
