Profile Information

I suppose a quick note about myself would be in order. I'm just a normal, happy guy. I finished my first novel in my teens, several since. I write because I enjoy it. Writing is free therapy, a way in which to work out what bothers or scares me in a world of my own creating. Plus, what out there really is better than creating something from nothing? To fill a blank page with the right words, preferably in the right order, is a work of art, a labor of love. I do it for the art, I don't quit because of the love.
