Writing is my passion. As long as I can remember I have been writing. Writing my thoughts, writing my feelings, expressing myself in a written format. I held it back during my younger years. Afraid of criticism, maybe, afraid of being picked on, probably, but not any longer.
I write because I want to be heard. I write because I have stories inside of me I have to tell. I write cause I want to share my feelings, my thoughts, my dreams, my horrors with the world. Writing is a big part of me.
I was born in Balve Germany, September 26, 1963 to a young military couple. After growing up a military brat for seventeen years, yes you guessed it, I joined the military where I served for the next seven years. I was honorably discharged and worked as a civilian with the Department Of National Defense for the following eight years.
With the birth of my youngest daughter, Samantha, I took a year off work to raise her. That is when I started looking at writing seriously. Between the diapers and the feedings I wrote my first novels. I then moved into writing movie scripts, penning out a number of them. I wrote a moving drama with my fantastic creative partner Linda Sparks, http://www.georgenaproductions.com that is optioned to a Montreal production company.
In order to pay the bills I worked in the food service industry, the high-technology industry and the manufacturing industry, where I still currently work as a Purchasing Officer. Write at night, work during the day in order to live and give my wonderful children what they deserve.
It isn’t easy being a single father, and I don’t want to sound like a cliché, but if I had a chance to go back, I would truly do it all over again. It has been and continues to be, a rewarding experience.
I personally never believed in love at first sight, but then I met Sheila, my Fiancée at this point in time, and let me tell you I am a true believer now and will tell everyone that will listen about how strong I believe in it.
I waited forty years for Sheila to walk into my life, but when she did, she stole my heart. It was love at first sight and everyday I thank the heavens above for sending her to me.
For I have never experienced that complete and utter love that I share with Sheila. She is my true love, my soul mate, my best friend. I feel so blessed knowing that I will be with her for the rest of my life. That our love, unconditional as it is, grows for each other every day.
Sheila is the inspiration behind some of my writing, in reality, Sheila is the true inspiration to my life. I love her.
