I’m 59 years old. I’ve been happily married for thirty-one years to a lovely lady who is my best friend. We have five adult kids between the ages of 20 and 29. No grandchildren yet, alas, but we have three grand-dogs. My wife and I enjoy reading, cooking, hiking, and traveling.
I worked as a physician for over a quarter of a century. I always enjoyed the art of medicine but not the business of medicine. I haven’t missed it since I 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 2017, I completed the first draft of a young adult novel titled Beautiful.
I write every day. I am a member of SCBWI and the Central Indiana Writers Association. My habit of continuing education in Medicine has transferred easily to books and blogs on the craft of writing,
