I’ve been happily married for thirty-five years to a lovely lady who is my best friend. We have five adult kids between the ages of 24 and 33. We were blessed with our first grandchild, an exceptionally cute boy, in November 2021. His gorgeous sister arrived in February 2023. My wife and I enjoy reading, cooking, hiking, and traveling.

I worked as a physician for over thirty years. I always enjoyed the art of medicine, but not the business of medicine. My wife and I are now happily retired.

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 most days, but not 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. My habit of continuing education in medicine has transferred easily to books and blogs on the craft of writing.
