Who is Pappy?

Hi I'm DA, also known as Pappy by friends and loved ones. Thanks for stopping by my website. I will assume your stopping by for 1 of 2 reasons, 1- You know me and are curious about what I've been doing. or 2 - You are interested in Pappy's Puzzle Books, or at least seen it and are curious about who created it. Well that would be me, in some cases I had some help, with the cover art, but the interiors are all mine. I have had many careers in my life and here as I near my golden years I wanted to try something I had never done before. I have always had a love of puzzles, games, books, movies, jokes and stories. I found that I really enjoy the process of creating a well thought out puzzle book. Sure I've had some stumbles along the way, but that's how we learn right.
In my lifetime I have been a Marine, a liquor salesman, a cook, a ink jet technician, a pizza delivery man, a nurse, a manager, a leader, a winner, a loser, a husband, a father, a son and of course a Pappy. In all these years I have never been a published author, so here I am, just thrilled to now be a published author. I live in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee with my daughter and German Sheppard dog named Echo. I enjoy the life we have built here and find great pleasure in the simple things. I have traveled the world and lived all over, but I am home now and plan to stay that way.
If all goes well, I will continue to make Pappy puzzle books, while expanding this web site to include some things I find fun and relaxing or look that way to me. If you enjoy any of my books, please give them a positive review and feel free to drop me a line and let me know.
Happy puzzling!  Pappy
