I write becuase it's something that I enjoy doing, plain and simple. I have horrible spelling and my grammer is atrocious, but for better or worse this is my creative outlet. The written word has always interested me, my tastes influenced by one of the most brilliant men to ever walk this earth (in my opinion). My father introduced me to the Russian authors in my early adolecense and I have never given them up. Tolstoy, Doestoevsky, Puskin, Nabakov, and those are just a sampling of the brilliant minds that have created the realm of Russian literature.
I don't pretend to put my self on the same plane as the aforementioned authors, I just enjoy their work over many others.
My goal as a writer, it to put something out to the world that is as entertaining to read as it was for me to write it.
