I currently reside in beautiful northeastern Pennsylvania with my wife Jill and our daughter Jessica and newborn son John Stephen. I am thirty-eight years old and presently work as a VA Certifying Official for the oldest distance-learning school in the United States. In my spare time (which is scarce) I enjoy collecting and selling sports cards and memorabilia and playing bass guitar. I own a U.S. Design Patent for an ornamental beverage carrier and have self-published a book titled Money For Sale and have also co-written several copyrighted songs. I would cite Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti as essential influences on my writing.
