Born in a small Appalachian town in Virginia, I grew up understanding simple things. As
my family moved to keep up with my father’s promotions, we ended up in Memphis,
Tennessee, a drastic change from my roots. My high school had more students in it than
the town where I was born.

My formal education is in counseling, in which I have a post-masters Ed.S. degree. I
practiced mental health for over 8 years, first as a school counselor, then as a therapist in
a mental hospital. Undeniably, those experiences influence many of my characters, as
they work through trials and struggles.

Around 1988, I began writing in the world of Siliar, created by my life-long friend and me
some years earlier. For years, the world of Siliar grew and developed until in 2004, we
decided it was time to share it with the rest of the “real” world. Off and running, the
process of submission began.

Interests: I am eclectic to the core. Baseball (coaching my son’s team), bass fishing, computers, photography, and woodworking are foremost among the things currently taking up my time. However, my relationship with God is, overall, the most important thing
