Ten Random Facts

I've decided that my shiny new YA novel needs an entry into #PitchWars, so I thought I’d re-introduce myself and share ten random facts about me. If you'd like to know about other authors who will also be participating, you can find their bios in this post. For those who are new to my blog, welcome. Dig around because there's plenty to discover. 

1.      I love movies. All of our kids and pets are named after main characters from the following movies:
·         Beetlejuice
·         Last of the Mohicans
·         Lord of the Rings
·         Return of the Jedi
·         Sabrina
·         X-Men

2.      My last Five Netflix watches are:
·         Friday Night Lights (the series)
·         Kingpin
·         Zoolander
·         The Pursuit of Happiness
·         50 First Dates

3.      I met my wife while I was dating her sister. She thought I was a dork.

4.      My wife and I celebrated 20 years of marriage this past June. She still thinks I’m a dork.

5.      I love thunderstorms and sailing, but not at the same time.

6.      I served two years in France as a church missionary. I lived in Chartres, Corbeil-Essonnes, Paris, and Troyes.

7.      I decided I wanted to write at age 15 after a tragic canoeing accident on the Snake River.

8.      I was once followed into a restroom by a man who thought I was Tom Hanks and wanted an autograph. (I don’t look anything like Tom Hanks)

9.      I’m currently reading Don’t Look Back by Jennifer Armentrout.

10.  I’m super shy unless you put me in front of a microphone. Then I’ll talk your ear off.


There you have it. Ten things you didn't know about me. I’m pleased to meet you.


Happy Reading.

Out of the Cave

Where have I been? What have I been doing?

Stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. I lead a busy life. Oh, and reading and writing.

I am going to climb out of the cave soon for some social sunlight. I have a new book and it's so close to being shiny and bright that I can't keep the awesomeness a secret any longer. Pardon me as I stretch my arms for a bit and get used to the light. More to come, so watch out!

Happy Reading.
