Yes, it's true! As a young boy in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I would read the dictionary... for fun. Spelling bees were child's play. I didn't just solve word search and crossword puzzles, I created them. Today, I credit my proclivity to writing to those early years. As a self-proclaimed "wordie," I suffer from an affliction I call, "Da Vinci Code Disorder." I can look at a large block of text and misspelled words immediately reveal themselves to me as if they were hovering over the page, taunting me. I don't have to find them, they find me.

I studied Broadcasting at SFSU and launched a career in radio. Hated it. I've since held management careers in culinary, consulting and occupational health & safety. But now, I write. A lot. Today, I'm a grandfather, husband and father of 3 who loves to run, swim, garden and cook.

Oh, and I still have that old Webster's Dictionary but thanks to the digital age, it now lives on a shelf with so many of my other favorite childhood books.
