As a young man I was torn between a desire to create stories and a desire to help animals. Ultimately, as I progressed through school I decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. In 1987 I received my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. Over the following twenty years I worked along side my wife (who I'd met in vet school) to build our veterinary practice.
But the longing to be a writer was working its way free from deep within me until I could no longer ignore it. Initially, I wrote an unpublished novel that served to cement my love of writing. Subsequent to my failed novel, I tried my hand at short story writing and had found where my literary heart lay. I have written over 100 short stories, many of them published in print or online literary magazines, journals, and anthologies.
In 2012 Press 53 published my first collection of stories, "In a World of Small Truths," and in May of 2019 my second collection of short stories, "I Hear the Human Noise," was released.
