I am normal guy no different than anyone else. I grew up in a small town in Pineview Ga. in Wilcox County. I tried the college thing but that didn’t work out so well, so l later joined the military. That was a great choice for me at the time given I had no plans of what I wanted to be so that was a good move. Army was my branch of choice. I really wanted to retire but that wasn’t in my cards. But it was a great move. I currently live in Ga, but I am now making the move to California since my book has been doing well on the charts I feel like it will be a good move for me and my writing journey.
