Profile Information

I was born to first generation depression era parents who somehow managed the American dream of 2.5 children, 3 million dollars and lifestyles scripted by Hemingway and Ferber. We owned multiple estates in different regions and each was equipped with a fine library.  My own reading addiction came about in the 4th grade when our teacher canceled lessons and proceeded to read to us The Hobbit. I was a goner and after stripping Tolkien I found C.S. Lewis and I was off. Later in life I would add to my tastes and now wait impatiently for Lee Child and Robert Crais to feed me.

My college schooling was actually in theater arts. I spent about 6 years in that field then followed a calling in culinary arts. I finally ended my career years owning a company specializing in high end four color process textile  screen-printing so writing? Well, why not?

The opportunity to try my hand at writing has finally presented itself. So with only the urging of friends to "write anything" ,because they always seem entertained when I do, I present my humble beginnings. My own taste in reading is eclectic. I hold Sharon Kay Penman, an historical fictionist in high regards. I have my personal entertainment club that consists of Lee Child, Robert Crais, Harlan Coben and Elmore Leonard to name the starters. If I could write a short story that held a candle to thier worst prose I'd be blessed. As it is my mind doesn't work on the same plots, curves shadows or character building that those guys have so they will remain my distant muses. I want to avoid attempting a storyline that my own writing style won't support so my first forays will reference my early life raised on an island on the coast of Florida in the late 50's. My parents were such  characters in real life that even Hemingway would have made use of them  or, thinking back, perhaps they made use of him.

Wish me well.
