Dwight is 40 years old, married, and has two young daughters. He's a Presbyterian Church USA Minister and has been for the last 12 years.
He's the youngest of three children and is the only son.
He is a stand-up comic in his spare time though his writing here is not often humorous.
I draw on the flawed nature of my own personality and the relationships that exist between pastor and congregation.
I write stand-up comedy jokes. So I'm a different sort of writer. I write sermons and blogs but I'm seeking to develop a voice in fiction. I hope to write humorous fiction, but truthfully I'm expressing some darker things for now. Humor is my passion and I strongly desire to tap into that gift and share it with others.
Human frailty and the consistency of our shortcomings fascinate me. I like to name these realities and try to make them something that brings us to laughter.
I write to express frustrations, sorrows, and joys. I write to give voice to my thoughts and share the human experience with others. This helps me grasp in some small part the connection of humans with one another.
I could lie and share with you that Melville, Shakespeare, and Bronte were among the books and plays I've read many times over.
I do enjoy the books of Alexander Dumas. The Three Musketeers, and the Count of Monte Cristo are the two that I hold most dear.
I really love to read David Sedaris-Me Talk Pretty One Day, and Dress Your Family in Denim and Corduroy among others.
I like the sarcasm and insight of Samuel Clemens. His biting humor informs my own critique of Christianity and Culture.
I enjoy reading Steve Martin's novels and his books in general.
Al Franken's books amuse me as well as Carrie Fisher's. Truly not great literature-but they make me laugh-and that's a wonderful asset.
I enjoy the literature within the Bible. In particular the Hebrew Poetry of the Psalms and Isaiah.
