I live on a mountainside in the Cherokee National Forest in East Tennessee with my wonderful wife, two 90 pound bull dogs, and an assortment of foster dogs. It is my pleasure to serve as an ordained Elder in my church. I am a master woodworker, former custom furniture maker and once dreamt of sailing the world in a Bristol Channel Cutter. I almost got there too. Stories about this and my life as a mountain man wannabe are posted to my Random Thoughts blog. My favorite things in mortal life include big dogs, gentle music and honest people.
In addition to my woodworking I've been an author and freelance writer, published mostly in magazines. I have one book through a publishing house, two more through Kindle and Createspace (paperback). Several more books have been started and are in progress now including my first attempt to publish Sci-Fi. Sci-Fi is my favorite genre to read; my favorite authors include A.C. Clarke, Isaac Azimov, Frederick Pohl and Larry Niven.Read More
