I’m center-brained and I get bored easily. I worked a lot of jobs in construction, as a security guard, a motorcycle (I’m a certified Honda and Yamaha tech) and car technician, a property manager, and in the scuba industry. My favorite was being an aviation electronics technician in the US Navy. (I guess my new favorite is writing). After a motorcycle accident left me paralyzed, the Navy said,”You’re out of here,” and medically retired me.
I moved back to Ohio, got married, had a son, and completed a bachelors in business management. I grew tired of the cold and the snow. It doesn’t make it easy to get around when you’re in a wheelchair. After years of trying to convince the wife to sell the house and travel, we bought a twenty-five foot toy hauler. I voided the warranty the day we brought it home by taking out one of the bunks and installing custom cabinets I made. Then we spent several winters traveling the Southwest, and eventually sold the house. We lived in the trailer full time for about two years and saw most of the US, except Kansas and Nebraska, and New England. We’ll get there. You can see our travels at www.wheelsonfire1.blogspot.com
Along the way, I tried my hand at a lot of action sports; skiing, skydiving, bungee jumping, and scuba diving. I love to dive, so much that we ended up settling in Hollywood, Florida. I try to dive at least once a week and I’m working on my technical diving certifications. Also, I want to go to three hundred feet.
Life has blessed me with the time to write. I started a book when I was first injured in 2001 and fourteen years later dusted it off and rewrote it. After that, I put it on a shelf and went on to write the next one and the next one. I hope you enjoy reading them as I have writing them.
