Meet Dennis

Meet Dennis, a native of the Pacific Northwest, which means he actually knows how to enjoy a rainy day. He is the father of three grown children. He's been in ten foreign countries and driven through all but six states (he has yet to visit Hawaii!).

A graduate of Colorado Christian University, Dennis worked as a flight test mechanic at Boeing and helped build the first 767. Over the last 25 years, he has owned three businesses. He has been a professional keynote and motivational speaker for ten years, and he teaches the online course, Ultimate Bookwriting Guide: Write and Publish Your First Non-Fiction Book in a Matter of Months.

Dennis is the international bestselling author of Fumes and a Prayer: How to Live at the Edge and Still Be Home for Dinner.
