Playing and writing music
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I don't read EBooks, at least not yet.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was a novel about a plague and two geneticists who manipulated DNA to cure it. It was saved on a Floppy Disk and my father tried unsuccessfully to save a photo over it, thus replacing my work with gobbledygook. But, alas, we live in a society where there is no distinction between gobbedlygook and great literature. A little SEO can make anything famous.

Experience life and reality intensely, then reflect upon it using my imagination and a bit of fantasy
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?

They are adventurers with an open mind and willingness to listen and understand others.
