I’ve been happily married for thirty-three years to a lovely lady who is my best friend. We have five adult kids between the ages of 22 and 31. No grandchildren yet, alas, but we have three grand-dogs. My wife and I enjoy reading, cooking, hiking, and traveling.
I’ve been a physician for over thirty years. I always enjoyed the art of medicine but not the business of medicine.
Great literature has held a special place in my heart since I was a little kid. I read voraciously in a wide variety of genres, not just the genre in which I write. My wife and I are old-school in that we prefer real books, with paper pages, to e-books (though I have both). Over the years, we’ve amassed a library of many hundreds of books.
When I was younger, I wrote quite a bit. Then came medicine, family, kids. Before I knew it, I was in my fifties. It was time to do something new. In July 2018, I completed the first draft of a young adult novel titled Beautiful.
I write every day. My second novel is out to beta readers and I’m hard at work on my third novel. I am a member of SCBWI and the Central Indiana Writers Association, and I’m part of an excellent critique group that met regularly till Covid and now is virtual. They’re good people and I can’t wait till we can meet in person again. My habit of continuing education in medicine has transferred easily to books and blogs on the craft of writing.
