Colorado Springs, CO

My parents moved to Colorado four months after I was born, from Lincoln, NE. I graduated from Abraham Lincoln H.S. in Denver and attended one year of college at Metro State College. I moved back to Colorado in 1984, from pastoring in S.D. I have worked several jobs while in the Springs: custodian for School District 11 for 13 years; as a court clerk for the Court House for one year; as an Assistant Floating Manager for Goodwill Industries of Colorado Springs for three and a half years; and as a city bus driver for the last eleven years. I originally came here to serve as a children's pastor and served three churches from 1984-2002, as a children's pastor, elder, youth pastor, and associate pastor. I love Colorado's landscape and have skied, hiked, bird-watched, and enjoyed astronomy here. I have also acted in costume portraying Patrick Henry and William Bradford. And at Easter I have performed as Barabbas.

Use the public library and look at The Writer's Market Guides for information regarding publishing, editing, how to find an agent, etc. I hope this helps.
