About the Author

Family

I tell everyone I was born in Chicago, even though my time there was very short-lived.  Snowflake, AZ is where my heritage resides and my future really began.  Luckily for my elegant mother and rough-edged father, they had me to guide my four younger brothers.  It didn't always go as planned.  I married Debra and we were blessed with six children of our own.  Now they are all grown.  As their father, I am very proud of each of them.

Experiences

I was born a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  Each life experience as re-emphasized  my gratitude for the guidance it provides.  I served a 2-year mission in Argentina.  Just as I found my sweetheart, I was wrapped into the Vietnam War.  As a 1st Lieutenant, serving on the front lines, I had a chance to question what was most important to me.  I worked in real estate for many years before feeling a push to write. 

Advocacy

"Love thy neighbor" was not a mere suggestion, but a commandment.  I can certainly relate with those who seem to be out of luck.  I am proud to say I have tried to do what I can to improve our legal system, both on a state and federal level.  Prison reform, judicial oversight, corruption protection and narcotics rehabilitation are areas I feel can be improved greatly.  A deeper understand of our laws has been a life's work for me.
