I am the proud father of 3 amazing children. Their influence and love has changed me to a kinder and more empathetic soul. I love to play music. I play a mean harmonica and currently taking lessons for the guitar. Music and writing are my passions.
I feel so much conflict in our world. It troubles me to listen and watch people express hatred for those who do not share similar views. I want to write stories that look at the controversial issues that create conflict in our lives and subtly suggest ways to overcome our struggles. I also want these stories to be very entertaining and the content to be as unpredictable as possible.
