The WriterLogan met Charles at a Trinity University alumni event and seconds after Charles famously greeting him with, “Well, what do you want?” he knew they’d be friends. Grateful for the opportunity to help author The Groom Wore White Socks, Logan’s other professions include singing, songwriting, building websites, data analytics, and really just about anything super geeky.
He lucked out marrying a Minnesota farm girl. Together they celebrate life in his hometown, San Antonio, Texas with their four children.
