Who am I?

My name is Leopold Shircel. There are many terms that I would use to describe myself: Christian, geek, husband, dad, writer, chubby, Harry-Potter-Nerd, among others. I’m a stay at home dad to twin toddlers and an infant son. They give me a run for my money everyday, but I feel truly blessed to have a wonderful wife who has a great job and attitude that lets me stay at home to raise these three crazy kids.

I want to use this forum to share stories. Stories from my writing and stories of my daily life with twins. I believe what Phillip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials series, said about stories, “After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” And I believe everyone has stories to share, stories that others can connect with, find comfort in, or be inspired by. I hope people can find some of that here.
