About the author . . .

Where to begin? Where to begin? And, why did this come to be? Well, I'll be perfectly honest with you. I was in my car tootling around Columbus one day when the idea flew in the window from out of nowhere. Why not share some of my personal experiences with everybody else? The concept seemed to be ok. I felt comfortable with the idea and decided to do something about it. Even though many of the chapters in Welcome to Paradise are personal, this is the real nitty gritty. I'm not going to hold anything back. Well, not much. This will also give me an opportunity to recognize many colleagues, friends and, yes, family members. Come to think about it, this might also be a grand opportunity to do a little serious grousing. In other words, to vent. So, I don't know any more than you do what's going to happen. If you want to go along for the ride, fasten your seat belts and let's get going! This site is under construction, so wear your hard hat!
