Age 3 - Born August 12, 1960. 

Yup, that's me! Listening to my old 45's (no CD players back then!). All of my family, including my three brothers, were born  in Danville, Illinois. My grandmother had a farm that we loved to visit.   My father  has great stories about growing up on a farm. He even went to a one room schoolhouse!

My family and I moved to Rochester, NY when I was seven years old. That' s me in the first grade. We brought everything with us including our faithful dog, Taffy.

Wow! Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots!

Today, my whole family helps out with my writing.  My wife, Sue, helps by reading my stories to me. It’s always helpful to hear how a story sounds when someone else reads it. My two children,  Ryan and Mackenzie give me a lot of story ideas.  My dog, Gracie, doesn’t help with my writing but she’s pretty cute!
