For the last 20 years, I've spent my days as a software developer writing code. After about ten of those years, I began feeling limited by the rules and restrictions of software. So as a release, I began writing a short story at night, which eventually became my first book, Race to the Edge of the World. I haven't stopped writing code though. In addition to this website, I also built the website wordcounters.com as a resource for authors.
As far as me, well, I’m pretty average actually — a lot like Joe McGee from that first book. As with Joe, I enjoy hiking and biking, recently completing the C&O Canal towpath. When I’m not working, writing, reading, hiking, biking, or parenting, I try to take a few minutes to myself because like Colin Quigley from I'm Not Weird, I'm Just Quiet, I'm a bit of an introvert. And if I don't get that quiet time, I become a lot like Norman Dohring from The Curmudgeon and the Wormhole.
I live in Mount Airy, Maryland, where I'm currently working on the sequel to the The Curmudgeon and the Wormhole.
