I’m about to travel to a cabin in the Smoky Mountains (picture luxurious and not ala Deliverance!) to spend Thanksgiving with my family and my daughter-in-law’s folks. It’s the first time we’ve done this (yes, we get along very well with the in-laws!) and I’m excited to be getting away. And as I will prompt with my family in a few days, I’ll begin priming your pumps now: What are you thankful for?
Feel free to post (if you want) but more than anything, I hope you’ll realize and reflect (as I am right now) on the fact that we have so much to be thankful for.
I've played bass for Shania Twain, had a black rhino charge me while on safari, and I've been in the Oval Office. In high school, I went backstage to interview groups like Bob Seger, Rush and Kansas, sorta like "Almost Famous" but without Kate Hudson! As an author, I draw from all these experiences (and then some) when crafting my stories. The quote that sums me up the best is by G.K. Chesterton: "Nay, the really sane man know that he has a touch of the madman."
I'm married, the father of four wonderful children, and a proud grandfather. I currently live near Nashville, TN where I write, bike and am always on the prowl for adventure and stories.
