Wow, where to start. Born in southern Ohio, lived in the mountains of Colorado most of my life, temporary stops in several other states (Oregon was a favorite). Father of two (one with me, one without). Married once, Divorced twice. Spent most of life as a manager (restaurant & bar), have also worked at a wind farm, a music stand factory, drafted for a structural engineer, and too many other jobs to remember right now. I've been writing since I was a wee lad...been reading a bit longer.
