I live in Harriman, Tennessee with my wife Kara (pictured), and canine companions Lucy, Ginger and Clyde. I have two grown sons, Ben and Eli, and a daughter-in-law, Christina.


I earned a BS in Finance from Murray State University and an MBA from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.

I am active in my East Tennessee community having served on the local boards of the Boys and Girls Club and a federal credit union, on church leadership and creative teams, and on a parks and recreation advisory committee.


When I'm not writing I work as a project management consultant supporting Federal project teams. 


I am a huge fan of Disney parks and University of Kentucky basketball.
