Writer, reader, runner (slow), traveling man. Ten books for young readers so far, and I’m working on a large handful of others. A wonderful wife, three great kids, three super grandsons, and a big extended family. Surrounded by stimulation! There are a few things about the writing business I don’t enjoy, but the writing itself isn’t one of them. Creating characters and a world for them to inhabit and trouble for them to get in and choices for them to make? It’s a blast!
