I've lived a full life, if a little rough. Traveling around the country, I seem to attract the characters that smarter men would shun. They are people
too. When I look in their eyes, I see a little bit of myself, or at least the person I used to be.
I've lived in many places in America. I've thrown out the Anchor this time in Dover, Tennessee where I live with my wonderful wife of five years,
Mikki. I have two natural children, four step children, and a collective fifteen grandchildren as of February, 2011.
My life is ruled by Christ now, but I haven't forgotten when I more closely resembled the characters I write about.
I'm a proud Vietnam Veteran. I served as a Pointman in the Infantry for First Platoon, Bravo Company, of the 1st 327th Infantry of the 101st
Airborne. My Vietnam service was from November of 1969 to November of 1970. That part of my life is covered in my earlier book, Toll of War/Vietnam.
The most important thing I do in life is not writing books. It is guiding my children and grandchildren on a Christian path.
