Author and Blogger Marvin D Wilson - A Short Bio - Believe it - or Not? (wink)
Born at a very early age, in a small, modest northern cabin that he helped his father to build, Marvin Dean Wilson learned quickly and grew up fast, attaining twenty one years of age well before he or his peers had even graduated from high school. He went on to become a carpenter, using his natural god-given masonry skills to the best of his ability, and was quickly put in charge of his family’s entire used car sales operation – an enterprise his family had become famous for all over the county, wheeling and dealing from their junkyard-jammed front, side, and back yards.
Marvin soon tired of the world of redneck entrepreneurship however, and decided, at the age of thirty, to retire to the woods and contemplate his navel. After seven years in the Naval Service, he decided he had served his countryside long enough and, upon returning home and watching a Jimmy Swaggart special, he knew in a flash of enlightenment, beyond any shadow of doubt, he had found his true mission in life. Televangelism!
He went on to make millions duping poor, simple folks out of their money in return for his forty-dollar-a-pop, personally kissed and blessed plastic Jesus figurines, and after getting caught in an illicit affair with his secretary and being found guilty of skimming off the non-profit ministry’s coffers – all of which, by the way, he vehemently denies any wrong doing in or responsibility for – the devil make him do it! – he took up writing while behind bars as his preferred golden years career. What the hell, he figured … beats working for a living. And taxpayers were footing the bill for his stay, so what could be better?
Today he is a free man, still working full time and completely retired, happily penning – of all things, novels, and trying his best to enjoy a return to his roots. Root canals, that is.
