Seven Things About Me...

1. I was born and raised on the Island of Oahu in the State of Hawaii, but most of my family is made up of immigrants from all over the place.

2. I only planned on writing one book, but now I am almost done with my third book.

3. I used to fall asleep every time I watched the first Harry Potter movie. One day my wife made me stay up to watch it. I have been a fan ever since.

4.  When I was young I got caught up in gangs and drugs, and consequently, spent most of my young life out on the streets.

5. I am an ordained minister.

6. I almost died in a horrible car wreck when I was 19. I fell asleep behind the wheel and was nearly decapitated by a dump truck. I broke my neck and back, but I was able to walk out of the hospital on my own. That's my faith story.

7. I've been called many things in my lifetime, and without a doubt, "Daddy" is my absolute favorite.
