About meI am a reader, a writer, a teacher, the dad of a twenty-two year old, and a husband. The picture here reveals a portion of Monument Rocks, one of my favorite secluded spots in Kansas. It's located southwest of Hays, not far from Scott County Lake. Someday, I want to follow the road depicted in this picture just to see where it goes.
About my libraryEven though I have donated more than two hundred books to the public library and have sold some at Half-Price Books and a few at Amazon, it still seems as though I have more books than I know how to shelve. The books listed here don't include the ones related to work. The older editions of literature anthologies and composition rhetorics and readers were the ones donated to the library. My tags don't include the last few hundred books added to my account.
