I was born awhile ago, during a blizzard.
Since then, I try to make every day as exciting as that night was for my parents.
I write mostly for teens. And when I'm not doing that, I teach writing to teens.
When I'm not doing that, I'm with my wife, three kids, or way too many pets.
For Fun: Outside of the classroom and away from the computer, I try to get outside as much as possible. I love kayaking, running, hiking, skiing, and trail biking. I'm currently into obstacle course races. And I just got a road bike, (not pictured) so I can try some distance bike races.
Recovering addiction: Comic book collecting. At one time I had over 16,000 books. They had to go. So I kept only my favorite 2,000. Mostly Batman. Now I read mostly digital comics. But I still lurk at comic cons and comic stores sometimes.
