When I was very young, my mother told me I could be anything I wanted and I’ve tried hard to accomplish just that. I’ve driven a nuclear submarine, hunted squirrel with a slingshot, ran my own business, got kicked out of a midnight showing of Rocky Horror, drove a truck while talking on a CB radio, had an intelligence officer show me his badge, sailed across Long Island Sound in a rented boat, ordered food in a foreign McDonalds, rode on a firetruck in full gear with the sirens blaring, blew the engine of a car in the middle of nowhere, and appeared in a major motion picture (or at least my elbow did.)

Despite my colorful history, I live a fairly normal life in Maryland with my wife, two children, two dogs, two cats, and still find time to read books, write stories, and make others laugh.
