“Stories only happen to people who can tell them.” Allan Gurganus
I have enjoyed writing for many years, although there are some English teachers in my past who would be surprised. I write about various things – sometimes stories from my life, sometimes thoughts on a subject that has inspired me. Always with the hope that what you, the reader, find here is worth reading and makes you stop and think.
Writing is cathartic for me. Sometimes it helps me think through a problem or a choice. Sometimes it’s just for fun and helps me to “get it out” and on a page. I hope you’ll find something of value here that makes you consider things from a new or different angle.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Angie, and we have 3 grown sons, one beautiful daughter and two wonderful granddaughters and the best daughter-in-laws anyone could ask for. We all live in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina.
I also write devotionals for a Christian newspaper called The Journey Christian News – if your interested, you can read those here: http://www.journeychristiannews.com/category/devotionals-shared-articles/mens-devotional/
