- Kansas farm boy who came of age in the 1970s
- Medical professional with a colorful and checkered background
- Irreverent lapsed-Catholic with distain for organized religion but still very spiritual
- Imaginative and accessable humor writer
I've had many bizarre adventures and I've met a lot of off-the-wall characters I write about. I like writing non-fiction humor, mostly about my colorful past. There's already too much drama in the world as far as I'm concerned and I like to lighten it up a bit. Laughter is the best remedy for just about anything.
