I've been writing on and off (mostly off) since early grade school. I've had many people, including college professors, tell me I have quite a gifted knack for the art. I suppose my fear of failure is my best excuse for not having pursued this with more vigor. If I try it and fail, I've failed, if I don't try it the hope remains alive inside...


Background Information

Having grown up in the 70's I lacked the plethera of entertainment options available to the youth today.  Add to this that my patents were avid word junkies (books, crossword puzzles, etc) and it was formula rife for authoringshipwannabe...

My 400 cable channel substitue was the local used book store, where a paperback could be had for less than $2.00.  On days of higher cash availablity, the local mall (only blocks away) housed a sizeable bookstore.

Gary Brandner became my favorite author due to his seemingly perfect prose.

My fist brush with literary fame and fortune came in the fourth grade, where, what started as an assignement I tossed together and forgot about, turned into an award winning Haiku.  A local high school (noted mostly for having graduated the legendary talk show host, Phil Donahue), had sponsored the contest.  I still have the Eagle trophy and green ribbon! 

Birth Place
Cleveland, OH Cuyahoga
Additional Information

I live in a suburb south of Cleveland, Ohio USA with my fiance and her young daughter. I work for a utility company where, with company provided lap-top, cell-phone and paid mileage, I "rove" from shop to shop filling in for and otherwise assisting clerical staff with everything from payroll, meter reading schedules to warehousing duties. Please feel free to leave constructive reviews...!
