I live in the little town of Albion, Indiana, with my wife Emily, a cowardly ball python named Lucius, and our enormous beast of a dog Baeowulf . I have two daughters and twin grandsons, which can only mean I started having kids when I was seven. Honest.
My first two novels, the romantic comedies Storm Chaser and The Notorious Ian Grant, were published by Whiskey Creek Press along with my related short story collection, Storm Chaser Shorts.
I've also written a local history book, Smoky Days and Sleepless Nights: A Century or So With the Albion Fire Department; The No-Campfire Girls, a humorous young adult adventure; and a collection of humor columns, Slightly Off the Mark. My humor column appeared in three weekly newspapers for over two decades before moving to the monthly Kendallville Mall.
