A BIT ABOUT ME

My Story

I've been writing since the age of 13.  I submitted my first skit to Saturday Night Live at 14 and received a nice rejection letter. Life moved on and so did my idea of being a writer.  Then my passion came back to me in my early thirties when I joined a dinner theater production. Without warning, I began writing dinner plays, comedy skits, and started ideas for books. 

 

Although it took some time since I returned to my passion, I finished my first novel (In The End) in July 2016,  my second novel in October 2018 (Ancestry: Awakenings), and my third novel The Witch Detective: The Fire And Brimstone Bourbon Trail Case.   Bingo Baby will be released on November 30, 2020,  I still continue to write plays and skits, but I enjoy the book writing more.

I also began a podcast "Get A Life 2" in February 2019 that deals with the trivialities of being fifty plus years old.

 

I grew up in  Eastern KY in the small community of Vancleve.  I was influenced by the people, my parents, and the politics of the time.  Saturday Night Live, movies of the 70's and 80's influenced my comedic side, igniting something that would never go away. 

I have been married to my lovely wife since 1999 and have four children.  My two dogs and two cats provide the additional balance to my family life.  As I approach retirement, I  realize how important it is to make your dreams come true.  My dream is to be an author full time.  What's your dream?
