I contracted cerebral palsy due to complications at birth. Consequently, I have a severe speech impediment and a right arm that I can't use very much. I also walk with a limp on the right side.
I earned my high school diploma from Ceredo-Kenova High School. I obtained a bachelor of arts degree in political science from Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia. I attained my doctor of jurisprudence at West Virginia University College of Law in Morgantown, West Virginia. I graduated the Order of the Coif. I passed the bar and have been licensed to practice law in West Virginia in 2000.
"Perfect Love: An Ordinary Person’s Thoughts on Christianity" is my fourth book as a writer. It is my first work of non-fiction.
