I am a Christian, husband, father to three rescue dogs, entrepreneur, security executive, veteran, runner, cyclist, former pilot . . . and also a writer. My third novel, Leaving Darkness (WestBow Press, 2018), showcases a faith-based road out of the darkness of depression. I wrote my first novel while in high school (unpublished). I started my second novel in 1993, finally finishing and indie publishing Forgiveness in 2014. I have since released the prequel to Forgiveness, Temptations of the Innocent (2016) and collections of horse-humor articles and poems, and edited and published my mother's running memoir, At The Pinnacle (2018).
