Fun fact

I am a published author. My first novel was published last year 2019 is entitled Goyim and is a Christian Science fiction novel. I am the father of 6 beautiful and brilliant homeschooled and grown children. Clemson university is my team and I am a huge tiger fan. My family is originally from Charlotte but I grew up in Easley and South Carolina is God's country and the place I shall always call home. I look forward to one day soon returning to part time Christian medical mission work, which I was very active in, in my twenties.
