Hey there! Welcome to my home on the web! My passion is teaching writing and literature on both the high school and college level, but my dream since childhood has been to be a novelist. I achieved that dream with the publication of So Shelly with Random House in 2011. Since then, I have published three more novels: Goodness Falls, Island No. 6, and my latest Belfast, Ohio. In addition to teaching and writing, I also do public speaking and am available for a variety of occasions.
I reside with my wife, Julie, in Sandusky, Ohio, along the southern shores of Lake Erie, where I set all of my novels.
