I am living proof that it’s never too late to start something new.
Born in 1958, I have lived a rather full life. From my beginnings in Northeast Ohio, I have lived throughout the upper Midwest, parts of the Northeast and finally in Florida. These experiences have shaped me as writer. I started off my working career as a teamster working summers on a beer delivery truck. In college, I continued to deliver beer (fun). During the school year, I played on our university rugby and golf teams. I have also worked as a security guard, tutor and waiter. During these last 25 years I helped start a software company and a dental implant company.
Writing has always been part of my job. Creative writing has apparently been inside of me all these years. At my age, I am starting a 2nd career that inspires me outside my office.
My appetite for reading has always been voracious. Growing up with only four channels on the television set, and no internet, I turned to sports and reading to fill my time. To emulate successful people, I have a tendency to attack projects with an extreme amount of energy and focus. I have always believed that persistence and patience will lead to success. That philosophy has served me well so far.
I will attack writing with the same vigor I approach everything else in life. I hope it is reflective in my books and novellas.
