I raised my kids, and wonderful they are. I worked a lifetime it seemed to always just get by. I had dreams, but I also had responsibilities. The writer in me had to wait; I delivered newspapers and pizza, worked in an office and in retail, I did construction and drove a school bus; better yet, a Limo and even a truck to take care of these responsibilities.
I always loved to write things, I wrote anything that caught my interests. short stories, funny anecdotes, poetry. I wrote to the editor of the local newspaper and loved to see my name at the end of my letter.
I dreamed of writing a book one day. Not just any book... A post apocalyptic one that had danced in my mind. One day during some of my trucking downtime, I sat down to the computer and began to type. I had no idea where my musings would take me, I had not planned to write the book but simply began to write a story. In less than a month my first book appeared for sale on Amazon.
And proud I was! Once it was out there I re-read it and said to myself, “Who the hell wrote this?” I’d found that there were some mistakes and it seemed like I lacked some of the structure and grammatical skills I needed. After months of agonizing over it. Doing edit after edit it is finally getting ready for a Re-re-re-release it seems pretty good and book numbers two, three, and four are available with book five well underway along with others in various stages of writing and planning.
Emerging as a prominent author of the apocalypse and helping fellow authors, my life is immersed in the indie world and I am not only loving the story but the journey as well.
Working on my own blog now and freelancing for others, has given me the time to chase yet another dream. This one to compliment the other, having just completed my BA in Creative Writing, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Now I study for a Master of Science and even more, and I have never been happier with myself. Find all my other stuff.
