I live in the scenic southern town of Bluffton, SC. My wife, Sarah, and I own Beach City Health and Fitness on Hilton Head Island, SC. I have over thirty years in the fitness industry, opening BCH&F in 2005.
On the health and fitness front, besides owning a fitness center, I also teach Zumba, Body Jam, Sh'Bam, Body Pump, Boxing, and whatever else needs a last-minute sub. Dance is the most fun for me, but I enjoy the group exercise experience.
On the writing front, I have a love for research. The sci-fi and adventure books are a result of imagination meeting believability. The combination of impossible scenarios made real with strong characters, believable "science evolutions", and action-packed adventure drive my creative side.
Writing gives me the ability to travel anywhere, experience anything. I expect my stories, regardless of the genre or length, to do the exact same thing for readers.
As to poetry collection -- those keep me grounded in principle. Practicing my poetry skills always reminds me to keep my prose sharp.
