About the Author
I was born in Seattle Washington at the age of zero. I graduated with a degree in education from Western Washington University but have spent the past eleven years of my life being educated by my two children. Calvin is eleven and Muriel is nine and I tell them often "a good education is expensive." I have a beautiful and caring wife named Heidi so if everyone hates my book it's not such a big deal. My greatest achievement is nothing I have done at all but what God has done for me. I am a follower of Christ and am currently serving him as a chaplain and teacher at a small Christian School in Baguio City, the Philippines. All other things about me are plain and mundane, unless of course you think watching Star Wars, talking about baseball and debating theology are awesome. In that case you would probably find my life quite exhilarating.
