I lived in Minnesota my whole life, mostly around the St. Cloud area (which is the setting for The Smart Kid).
Graduated St. Cloud State Univ with a degree in Psychology.
On staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship for seven years, until 1991. And that is what brought me to Rochester, MN, where I live with Lorna, and children.
From 1991 to 2011, performing magic shows was my main income source. Related jobs were creating and selling magic tricks, books and CDs. Creating and selling memory-training CDs. Creating and selling a database program for performers.
In 2011, I added ‘Realtor’ to my title, while continuing my other ventures.
In 2013, I wrote my first novel, The Smart Kid.
