I’ve spent much of my life reading and writing. In middle school, there was more than one occasion when a teacher called me out for reading when I should have been paying attention. I also had a stack of papers where I had outlined chapters for a Star Trek FanFic novel. I used to tell my friend Turtle about them, and he would laugh and roll his eyes at me.
Along the way to growing up, I eventually moved on to other things. A brief stint as a professional yo-yoer gave way to college where I gave up studying music for a degree in accounting, because having a job after school sounded like something worthwhile.
Years later, in the summer of 2011, I discovered that I could actually publish and have a direct connection with readers. What’s this?! I read about the successes of the likes of John Locke and Amanda Hocking and figured if they could do it, so could I!
Writing had always been a part of my life. I have a stack of journals that is getting rather tall that chronicles much of my life since beginning college in 2000. But writing something and selling it to readers is still something very new to me. I’m excited and thrilled that I have the chance to do it, and I thank you for embarking on this journey with me.
