My love for creative expressions runs deep and wide. At the fore are my books and music. To date, I have had a children's chapter book series, a YA novel, and a novella published. Each has been well received. My latest project, Finding Beauty in the Gray: Stories and Verse from the Third Age is my first creative nonfiction book. It shares my own and others' stories of life in the second half. It's due to be released by November 14, 2023. You can pre-order your copy today on my Books tab.
For many, many years, I have been singing and performing in a multitude of settings, from churches to prisons, from barns to bars, from baseball stadiums to backyard bonfires. I was a founding member of the rock band, Thursday's Flight, and these days find my home in the classic singer-songwriter, contemporary folk tradition. I've written many songs of love and loss, a few of whimsy and mirth, and even the occasional commentary on our social condition.
In addition to my crafts of music and words, I am a loving dad to two adult daughters, one irascible beagle, two cat-like cats, partner to Heather, psychotherapist, life coach, and general raconteur living in Apex, North Carolina.
