I admit I'm an animal lover. When I look at the body of work I’ve created, some type of animal is usually featured in my stories. My wife is the one who pointed that out to me. :-) So, that explains most of the photos you see on my web site. I included a sea turtle because I love snorkeling with these amazing creatures. I admire the way they seem to have life figured out. They have no fear. They’re never in a hurry. They bask in the sun in the middle of the day. I am also the caretaker of a desert tortoise. I am awed by his determination to leave the enclosure we have built for him. No matter what I do, he figures out how to escape. Maybe I’ll write a story about turtles someday.
Below is my more professional, third person bio:
