I was born on a frozen battlefield, in the far north. As a teenager, I left home to wander the world. Along the way I found out that red nails were dangerous, elephants like towers, and whatever you do, do not go beyond the black river. Wait a minute. That wasn't me, but Robert E. Howard's Conan. I'm a little more pedestrian.

Me? Born in Kentucky, raised in Wisconsin. Learned to doodle a bit, tell stories, take pictures and write Braille (no, I'm not blind). In the last year I've written a handful of children's books and a novel that have been published by Begin Times Press.

There are 3 books in the Dear Gramma series, which concern letters written from Joey to his grandmother about his life experiences. The titles are 'Dear Gramma, I Went to the Thanksgiving Day Profeshnul Football Game ~A Parody~' and 'Dear Gramma, Santa Found Daytona Beach!' and 'Go West, Young Joey, Go West!' I also wrote and photo illustrated 'On a Michigan Hike'--a photo tour book for young readers, and wrote and drew 'No, No, Kissy McEel, Don't Kiss me!' It's the story of what happens to a little eel fish who has trouble understanding personal space. A shark helps him out.

As I shared my work with colleagues, they kept asking for a way to buy some of the photos I used in my books, so I looked around and discovered FAA and thought this wold be a great way to let my readers get copies of their favorite pages from the books.

By the way, my latest book published by Begin Times Press is a novel, 'Dover Falls Christmas.' What's it about? Jeff Forester’s soon-to-be ex-wife, Grace, is about to marry his lifelong rival, Arthur Karkinos when Jeff finds himself transported to Dover Falls, a city inside a snow globe. He meets quirky residents and Arthur and Grace—who do not know him. Jeff must figure out why he is in Dover Falls, why Grace left him and how to win her back: all with-in 7 days or lose Grace forever! If you like reading stories that make you feel good about being alive and not like slashing your wrists, you'll want to pick it up. It will soon be available on Amazon, as a book or in kindle version; and at Barnes & Noble and other booksellers as an e-book!

All of my books can be found at begintimespress.com. Stop by and say, 'Hi.' The light is always on, though I'm not always home!

I love taking pictures, creating children's books and writing stories. Just like you, I don't think there is enough time in the day. I wish I could print additional hours as easily as I print $20 bills on my printer. Maybe if I print more twenties I could buy more time?
