Besides writing historical fiction, I enjoy an eclectic range of hobbies: playing piano and composing music, hand balancing, reading Greek, Hebrew and Latin, and teaching English as a Second Language to students from over fifteen countries. I’m married to my first and only girlfriend, and I play at the park with my two young children, as this gives me an excuse to hang on the monkey bars. I live in West Michigan.
On this blog, I write historical tidbits, motivational ideas, and writing tips. 1) Historically, I am interested in most time periods and places from the Garden of Eden through early 1900s. Currently I am focusing on ancient Roman and medieval Spanish history. 2) Regarding inspiration, I take ideas from motivational authors and fitness specialists, seeking to come up with time savers and life hacks to improve writing with a family. 3) Writing tips include author interviews and advice on editing. Few of us like editing, but must of us now when its wrong.
