More About the Author
In my youth I passed hours around campfires, spinning yarns to entertain friends. There was nothing like a spooky tale as the woods creaked and groaned in the background! The skill of the storyteller was directly proportional to the number of eight-year-olds stricken with wide-eyed insomnia. Ah, the power of words!
I'm a normal guy, experiencing life with all it brings. I'm writing to share ideas, experiences, and lessons I've learned. I hope to make readers laugh, cry, consider, evaluate, and think, "I get it." In that moment we will be joined across time and space, and that is the marvel of words.
My wife is my best friend, and she makes the journey exciting. Our experiences are not unique, and I want to share with openness and honesty. Perhaps our story will help others.
Men can read scads of books about parenting, but nothing compares to being in the trenches. No other man on earth carries the title, "Dad", for Amanda and Michelle.
I am the shy, quiet guy at the party. I avoid large crowds and noisy surroundings. I prefer to sit by the pond, and talk. My ears are open, and I've discovered I learn more when I'm not speaking.
I love trees, woods, gardens, flowers, and hiking. I enjoy time in my shop creating, repairing, and discovering. I prefer vanilla ice cream, and will eat peanut butter with a spoon. I need to analyze and consider before responding. Perhaps that is what has led me to writing?
As I observe the world I realize I am just passing through. I can't take anything with me. I can leave impressions, memories, and kind thoughts in the hearts of others.
