Well, they tell me I need to say a bit about myself, here, so here goes!
I was born in St. Louis in 1955, and grew up in a small town in Southern Illinois. There, the same imagination that makes me a talented writer today often got me into trouble. Thankfully, I survived, and some of my early adventures have helped to shape my life and, and now my work.
Over the years, I've held a number of jobs; I've been in law enforcement, sales, advertising, and auto repair, and served as a banker, reporter, radio talk show host, music producer, song writer, theatrical, movie and video producer, truck driver, taxi driver...well, you get the picture, right?
I'd written a number of short stories, poems and other things over the years, but I'd never felt I had time to write a novel. Well, all of a sudden I found myself handicapped, and had lots of time, so one day I sat down and started writing! And guess what? I found out what I should have been doing all along. I think that's the real secret to happiness... find out what you love to do, and do it, even if it takes you your whole life!
But writing isn't all I'm about. My experiences in the entertainment industry have left me with a love for movies, so my wife Kathy and I plan to produce Independent movies of my books for Internet broadcast.
Check out our Production Company at http://magicmirrormovies.com. And if you've ever dreamed of being in movies...well, there's a lot of undiscovered talent out there, so we'll be looking for new faces to cast as these characters we love so much.
You never know. Could be your big break, eh?
