My self-summary
Here is a fraction of me in a fraction of a nutshell:

Patient, genuine, thoughtful and funny (Ha!) ((Or at least I make myself laugh)). I'd say I like to cook but I live by myself so when I cook for myself I only make tacos and enchiladas and guacamole. I enjoy beer whiskey and wine, pool darts building fires (in fire pits) and a smart pun. I also enjoy bad puns. Son of a rancher, engineer, wine makers, Stephen Minister, and 47yrs of marriage. Brother and uncle. That's totally fun. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Oh and I write. Typically I write words in a particular order, often with a noun and a verb, in order to convey a specific thought or feeling. I've been told that 220,000 words is too much for a first fantasy fiction novel.

As summaries go, I like yours better.

Things that make me go hmmmmm....

"If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make that change."

Selling my novels and myself to a literary agent is very similar to selling myself to you. Tricky. It will come down to right time, right place, right person.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not working then...
Out with friends at happy hour, playing pool, writing, editing, rewriting, deleting, drinking, rewriting and probably checking this site.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to make out in a car wash. Brown Bear, let's go.

"Well color me happy, there's a sofa in here for two!"
