Author of the Donatus Institute Book Series & Chronicles of the Golden city

My Story

Let me begin by making an honest confession: growing up, I never had hopes or dreams of becoming an author.  In fact, I can truthfully say that writing books was the farthest thing from my mind throughout middle and high school.  After all, I can't recall a single fiction book that I was assigned to read during my teen years that I enjoyed.  So if reading books wasn't something I enjoyed, why would I ever think about writing books?

To be clear, it's not that I was anti-book.  I have many memories of my dad reading to me as a child: classic fairy tales, fantasy adventures, and best of all, Dr. Seuss books.  But as I grew older, why would I want to sit and read when there were sports to be played?

But fast forward to adulthood, and one day everything changed.  I was out on a walk one fall afternoon when a story unexpectedly drifted into my mind.  Intrigued, over the next couple of weeks I mulled over the story, working out the plot, characters, and setting.  As I worked out the story in my mind, I came upon two realizations.  First, it wasn't just one book that was in my head.  It was three.  But second, I came to realize that I had to write the story.  It was too important not to write.  So I hunkered down in front of my computer, and a year later, after innumerable hours of typing, deleting, and re-typing, the Donatus Institute series was completed, and my writing career had begun.

Beyond the books, I'm a pretty simple guy.  A proud Midwesterner, for me a perfect day consists of playing sports and hanging out with family...and hopefully working up enough of an appetite to enjoy several big meals.

Take it easy,
