Born in Springfield, Ohio, Williams grew up on a farm near the town of South Charleston and the village of Selma in rural southeastern Clark County, "...about two miles from nowhere and between cornfields." He has worked in Retail Management for much of his adult life, but also has experience in Computer Repair, Technology Consulting, Radio & Television Production, Journalism, Advertising, Public Relations, and Sales Management.
He graduated from Shawnee High School in 1974. In the fall of that year, he began studies at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, receiving a BA in Mass Communication in 1978. Later, in 1981, he received a degree in Marketing Administration from The University of Texas in Austin.
In 1983 he joined the US Air Force and attended the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of Monterey in California where he studied Chinese Mandarin. Upon completion of military training, he spent two years in Asia. Shortly after returning to the US, Williams left the military and began a long career in management, which ended in 2012 when he decided to become a full-time author and assist other writers as a publicist.
He has three adult children, a grandson, and a grand-pup. Currently, he lives in Las Vegas.
