I'm a researcher and writer focused on documenting the lives and works of creative people in pop culture. I'm a member of the Biographers International Association and the Popular Culture Association.
I've published three books so far - Eleanor Cameron: Dimensions of Amazement, The Hopefuls: Chasing a Rock 'n' Roll Dream in the Minnesota Music Scene, and I Can Read It All By Myself: The Beginner Books Story - with at least two more on the way.
I was born in Kentucky, grew up in central Illinois, and spent my early adulthood in Minnesota. I currently live in Normal, Illinois with my wife and two sons; two cats; and way too many records, books, and comic books.
