Hey! I'm the father of three cute, hyperactive kids- landed straight off the heavens into my heart :) I'm an author in the core. Can't do anything but writing and digging things out. As you already have seen, I'm kind of a footwear fanatic- taking those little things as seriously as possible (which is bad, sometimes I think). Introvert within, extrovert with friends and not pervert by any means. :)
