How did I get here?

Updated: Jul 27, 2020

This has been a long journey, one I hope I'm just starting. After a lifetime of living, years of higher education, and friendships that I do not deserve, I am finally what I wanted to be when I grew up. A 'Paperback Writer'.


I owe tons of people for tons of reasons. But for now let's boil it down to three. My wife who's supported me through this exciting trip. Dusty Richards, who encouraged and educated me in writing and in how to be a friend. And Regina Riney, of Mockingbird Lane Press. My friend, editor and publisher. There is no way I could have done it without her.


In short, to get here is not something you can accomplish in a vacuum. Lots of hours are spent in the solitude of creating but the joy comes in the recognition from readers. You do it because you have to, but you hope they are glad you did.
