Top 5 interesting facts about M.D. Creekmore:

  1. When I was four years old I nearly died from a rupture in my small intestine caused by a condition known as diverticulitis (rare at that age). I had to be rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery – funny thing, is I still remember everything that happened down to the last detail.
  2. My great-grandfather on my mother’s side was full-blooded Cherokee and spoke little English. My great-grandfather on my father’s side was a full-time moonshiner.
  3. My first job was on a dairy farm cleaning manure from the shipping trailers and the barn. Now that was a dirty job.
  4. I hate to spend money. If at all possible would rather make something than to buy it. Must be the result of being raised dirt-poor in the mountains of Appalachia.
  5. I’ve been dog bitten three-times – yet still, love dogs.
