About Ivan Bissell
My first love is a Preacher of the Gospel for the Saint Helens, Oregon Church of Christ. My secondary job is driving 40 foot buses for Trimet of Portland, Oregon.
I have been happily married to my wife, Carrie Dawn (Jones) since 1978. Together, we are the proud parents of six children and at the time of this writing, the proud grandparents of three.
I enjoy writing poetry and short stories though I am currently in the middle of writing a rather lengthy one, loosely based on my life. I would dearly love to see some of my stories in print.
My newest venture, which will tie in with this blog, is the sharing of my attempt at colored pencil sketches, most of which have a humorous theme to them. It is my hopes in doing so, that my efforts will bring a little bit of enjoyment to the reader’s day.
