I am a sportswriter from Midland, Michigan, and the father of four awesome children (Andrew, 14; Brad, 12; Catherine, 10; and Jillian, 6). My wife, Amy, and I have been together since we were teenagers. We met in 1987, dated for six years, and finally got married in 1993. I love to read, listen to music, and write fiction. I have written several books for young adults and middle-grade readers. I have yet to get published but am still plugging away. BarlowGirl is my favorite band in the world. I own all of their CDs (except for the Christmas album, which I intend to buy soon), I have seen them in concert six times, and have met them five times. I also enjoy volunteering at our local elementary school four days a week, something which I've done for about eight or nine years now. I love working with kids, obviously. My favorite authors are Larry McMurtry, John Steinbeck, Kurt Vonnegut, and George Orwell. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in English. My favorite Christian musical artists other than BarlowGirl are Kutless, Audio Adrenaline, Superchick, and Toby Mac. I grew up on hard rock/heavy metal and still listen to bands like KISS, Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, Metallica, etc., once in a while. Lately, I have become quite a big country music fan, although I hated country for years.
I'm 29 years old and have been saved since July of 2002. Have been a fan of Barlowgirl since 2006, they are my favorite band, which they share with Metallica. I lived in Joliet, Il for the past 6 years, and have been married for almost 6 years to my wife Tracee.
