About

All of my life I have wanted to be a writer, I just didn't always know it. Truthfully, I'm actually a storyteller and I've always known that. The problem has been that I haven't always known how to merge the two; storytelling and writing. As a child, like most children, saying I wanted to be a writer was tantamount to saying that I would enjoy having everyone in my school come up and individually smack me with a rubber chicken. Since that wasn't going to happen, I never thought about ever saying it. Likewise, when teachers asked us individually what we wished to be when we reached the age that we could be something other than a dependent on a parent's tax return, saying I wanted to be a storyteller was equivalent to volunteering for after- school detention for twelve straight years. Since that wasn't going to happen either, that was also left unsaid. But, I thought about it. I just didn't know what to do about it. So, when I graduated from high school, I didn't know what to study at university. Oh, I tried, but not very hard. Consequently, I wasn't very successful. I joined the Navy and since they don't have a job description for storytelling, they taught me electronics. When I got out of the Navy, I took that foundation to the next level and earned a Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering. For the next forty-five years I made a career around computer science...and hated every minute of it. That's because I really wanted to write stories. And now I'm doing it. My published works prove that I'm doing it. I hope you like any or all of them. If not, please don't hit me with a rubber chicken.
