I was born in 1954, and raised in Michigan. At the age of 19, I was diagnosed with an advanced case of Hodgkins Lymphoma.I have been fighting to live ever since then.
Five years ago, I was informed that a valve replacement was necessary for me to continue living. Now the proud owner of a pig valve, I continue to battle every obstacle that tries to block my future…a future I don’t know but will fight for, every minute of every day.
As an accomplished writer,I write about courage, going beyond one’s limits, and defying convention. My stories are at once, enjoyable, intriguing, and inspiring. I have been writing since early teens, creating fantastic plays for the neighborhood children, telling stories to school kids, and creating wonderful games with my three sisters.
My premier novel, Barry is a great story about a young man that chooses to face life and death differently. Barry’s outlook on life infects people with hope and courage to face even the most horrible outlook.
In addition to books, I have written two plays that have been produced, one on the birth of Jesus Christ, and one on the Passion and Death of Christ. I am an occasional contributor to local newspapers, and frequently write for magazines and regional publications.
I live in Midland, Michigan with my wife, Colleen our three miracle children and a mutt named Scruffy.
