Deleted my life history, because none of it is who I am today. Currently, I am the father of a beautiful and talented daughter, Opal, beginning her Freshman year at IUP in the Music Education program. I'm also the proud father of a young man, Julien, is a Freshman at Punxsutawney High School, who has way too many Thompson traits for my liking...lol. The two of them mean more to me than anything in this world, and will always be my greatest accomplishments.
In regards to my current and final career, I have finally begun chasing my lifetime dream of being a succesful published author. I have 3 published novels and a short story to my name now and am currently working on my fourth novel. I'm still a starving artist at this point, but it's nice to be finally doing something that I enjoy, rather than lining some corporation's pockets for chump change. It's a very poor and tight-planned life, and my health and vision are deteriorating every year, but it's all mine.
