I hope this is the proper place to introduce myself. I was born and raised in North Texas, the son of a minister(my father) and an accountant(my mom). I attended what is now the University of North Texas for two semesters and then transferred to East Texas State College where I pursued a pre-theology degree with a minor in psychology. I served as pastor for numerous churches in East Texas and North Texas, but after several years I discovered that my mom's vocation was more to my liking so I switched to accounting and finance. I am married to the love of my life for 58 years. We have three children, seven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. I have been an avid reader for most of my life and I prefer fictional novels based on or inspired by actual events. I served as a judge for The North Texas Book Festival for several years.
