Bio. Whispering Whale
It was back in the early 80s when I was communicating with a friend who lived one hundred miles to the north in Portland,Or.. I did this in the ancient form of communications, the hand written letter.
The lady in question liked my style of writing to the extent that she thought I should write a short story. And this I did and when finished I had over six hundred pages. And I must say it was six hundred pages of crap. I knew nothing as to what it took to write a novel.
It was then that I began the long, long, periods of rewrites. How long? I spent over twenty years of rewrites, but I never deviated from the original story 'Whispering Whale'.
I rewrote and rewrote, I got a typewriter, and then I got a word processor and then finally a computer. I asked of advice, I took a few classes, I read books and most importantly I found a mentor living twenty miles to the north. He was an English professor on sabbatical. It turned into a long association and with his drill sergeant style of tutoring the effort came to a conclusion and in the year of 2004, the book was published, self-published that is.
It's time to read, enjoy
