A serious knee injury in his sophomore year, allowed him only sporadic practice time during his junior and senior campaigns, but he started every game and performed admirably. He carried that same competitive spirit and tenacity into his life after graduation. Over the years, as his relationship with God grew, his writing became more inspired by revelations from The Spirit, and his deep love for his family. Most of his work involves Godly encouragement, and many of his works were birthed in creating greeting cards and tributes for his family.

After his retirement from a career as a sales manager, in 2011, he completed his first novel, “Our Season in Grasmere”, began his own publishing company, Goode God Publishing, and completed this book, “Whispers Just Before Dawn”, his first anthology that presents poems, essays, and letters that cover 4 decades of loving his God and his family. "Our Season In Grasmere" has been published as a two novel set - "Prepare for Us a Season" and "Our Season In Grasmere".
