I write based on people around me as well as my real-life situations that happen every day. I feel this is appealing to readers simply because most can relate or have been in similar situations. I want them to know they are not alone in how they feel about particular situations and subjects. I was raised by a single mother who has blessed me with the gift of writing. I am a father and stepfather of eight children combined, with ages ranging from seven to eighteen. I live in southwest Georgia.
