My name’s Mike Snider—Mike or Michael, your choice, though Michael’s less likely to be confused with the banjo player. Born February 21, 1953, in Louisville, Kentucky, I now live in Dameron, Maryland.
My first wife, Nancy Carole Banks, disappeared with my daughter, Lee Banks Snider, in 1993. In the spring of 2002, Lee got in touch with me, and though she’s refusing contact now, I remain hopeful she’ll be a part of my life once more. Not a day goes by I don’t think of her.
I was married for 12 years to Deana Snider, and I’m still very fond of her, and of her daughters, Carlie Rose Morris and Sierra Sue Morris. I lived with them in North Carolina until the telecom industry did what it did and I had to take a job in Maryland for a Naval contractor, only seeing them twice a month for five years. Sadly, it proved too much for all of us.
You might get a chance to see me (my beard, back, and feet, anyway) in the independent film The Delicate Art of the Rifle.
