I am 38 years old. I used to work in an academic library, and for fun, I used to sell books. Now, I sell cars, but I am, in short, an information junky. I am a Lutheran. I enjoy writing and talking about writing and reading and discusing books. I'm actually a bit of a geek in that regard. And finally, my mantra is this: "Every day is a good day and its not a mistake, its a learning opportunity."
