Hello everyone! First I want to say thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find stories and titles of interest. To give you a little bit about myself, I am from Maryland and now live in upstate New York. I currently work for Bennington County, Vermont and my wife, who had a blog post of labellanoire, works from home. I am a military veteran, and spent eight years in the Army as a Military Policeman. My last tour of duty was in Kabul, Afghanistan from August 2003 to May 2004. I ended my service with the military in October 2006. I was also a police officer in Maryland, but with my wife getting a new job, I had to leave that dream behind and continue it with another agency. My wife, Natasha, and I have been married since December 2007 and have been through hell and back.
One of my hobbies, on my days off or when I have nothing important to do, I enjoy writing and entertaining my friends and followers. I got into blogging because of my wife, who saw the potential of my writing and even featured me in her blog posts from time to time. My first real validation was when I got one of my stories printed in the Washington Post magazine in 2012. I was due to come out with my first novel in January 2013, but complications arose to not let that happen. Although that was discouraging, I never let my dream of becoming an author drift away into the abyss. My goal of this blog is to bring you unique stories, ideas and keep you entertained to come back for more and more. I hope you can appreciate what I will be doing and what is to come, and feel free to be honest, with respect, about stories and other posts. I don't mind having a dialog with my readers!
