Rick Townley is Chloe's grandfather and this is what he calls his second "tour of duty" for raising kids. A native of New Jersey, he and his son and daughter lived in Florida for 18 years before he moved to western North Carolina and finally back to New York.
Mr. Townley writes short stories and business articles for several web publications. He also created and writes for a humorous blog called For Boomers Only, and is managing editor of The .918 Press, a digital publishing company.
In his free time he can be found at the grocery store, at the laundromat, cleaning or cooking. Townley said he hopes he can retire from parenting before the great grandkids come along.
