Author's Bio

I often call myself an "accidental author," because I backed into this profession at age 35. In addition to writing, I am teach yoga and creative writing, am a City Councilman and Deputy Mayor, and just learned to tap dance. Who knew that when I got yelled at for daydreaming out the window, I was really preparing for the greatest job ever?
