I'm a writer, editor, papaw, and feeder of fish (who occasionally catches).
I grew up in Crooksville, Ohio. Went to college, joined the Army, lived in California and Korea, moved to Kettering, Ohio, became a music teacher, and started writing. I'm married with three grown children and six grandchildren. I enjoy writing comedy, for the radio, mostly. I also enjoy writing for and about senior citizens because I am one and I like us. Fishing is both my hobby and my obsession. Fishing has taught me the joy of the solitude of nature - uninterrupted by the excitement of catching anything. Ever.
My grandchildren are the best looking, bravest, smartest, most talented grandchildren anywhere. The contest is over. I won. Aside from that, I caught a huge Northern Pike once. And many, many bluegills. I can make cheese popcorn that will astonish you. But I will eat it myself so you will probably never know. I'm an average trombone player but way better than people who don't play it at all. I met Henry Fonda once. He was one of the most gracious people I've ever spoken with. Finally, I can tie my own shoes. Still.
