About Me

I love to read and write.  When I was a child and envisioned my future, I saw myself smoking a pipe in a study, happily studying.  As you can see from the photo, my dreams have come true.  I praise the Lord, who has given me the ability to pursue my dream.

I have many varied interests, and this has resulted in me writing in many different genres and styles.  I greatly enjoy hiking, playing games, and learning.  I fill my professional and hobby time with these endeavours.

I live in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina surrounded by National Forests and State Parks.  This definitely helps with the hiking trail reviews.  I also love music in virtually all genres.  I almost always have something playing.

I am also a lifelong learner.  I am currently attending school.  In addition to official/professional studies, I always have a book going that contributes to my knowledge in some fashion.

I have been called into ministry and am a Christian Druid focusing upon proper Christian stewardship of the environment.  I am also a member of the inter-faith druidic organization of the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA) aoda.org.  My goal is to have a specifically Christian Druidry website up soon providing Christians and others with resources to fulfill this often-neglected area of God-given responsibility.

Writing is an art for me.  I have no interest in catering to fashion or whim in order to strive for a runaway best seller.   I craft each book with love and create what I feel to be the highest quality book possible.  Of course, some books are more artistic than others.  With some of the non-fiction, for example, "highest quality" can simply mean accuracy.  Other areas, such as poetry, are exclusively artistic, so "highest quality" means I do it to the best of my ability.  If I can touch someone's life in a meaningful way, then I consider my book a success.

I am lucky enough to have grown up in the small town of Brevard, North Carolina.  Much of my family still lives in the area.  I have two grown sons who have left home, leaving me with my feline buddy, Petit-Leon, le Chronicleer du Fay.
