I decided as a high school freshman to be a journalist. It took awhile to accomplish that goal, but I eventually wrote for several metropolitan Detroit newspapers before leaving the business in 2006. I covered several different news and sports "beats" during my career. Hard news was fun, but I enjoyed feature writing the most, especially profiling people. A teacher I interviewed once said that her job "made her soul sing."
That's how I feel about writing. I hope it's reflected in my stories and I also hope that you enjoy reading them.
In terms of my works of fiction, I have written a pair of romantic suspense stories thus far. The Eden Effect, a novella, and Born Again, a short story, are contemporary pieces that show some of the challenges of marriage in extra-ordinary circumstances. While there certainly are Christian overtones to both stories, they're aimed at readers of romance and suspense in general.
Aside from writing, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children. I'm also a huge fan of the Detroit Tigers, and as you can tell by my photo, I'm also a Michigan State University Spartan.
