Favorite Book/Author

Pete Dexter's Deadwood is my current favorite.

Special Interests

I love music of all kinds, but especially '80's alt-rock (yay, Replacements!), movies of all kinds and all eras (favorite: The Third Man), and books, books, books. I usually have several books going at once, mostly non-fiction but I love a good novel too.

I grew up in Witt, IL, and have lived in Iowa, Texas, Springfield, Champaign and now Decatur. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of Illinois at Springfield and a Master of Science in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I'm married to the love of my life, with two beautiful, intelligent daughters.

Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
