My publicist would have you believe that I am as close to perfect as you could get, have already made the New York Times Best Seller list, and lead a conservative and perfect little life.
This author actually has a few vices; just the usual ones that most people have. To truly see reality let me paint you a picture. Artists and writers have been depicted over time as socially challenged loners who are ultimately driven to madness or drink, maybe both. Adding to this heady mix would be a daily over absorption of caffeine, nicotine and grape juice in the form of wine. Authors are individuals who are usually found bent over their typewriters, the scene lit only by a bare light bulb or oil lamp into the wee hours ... read more

It was raining when I was born, in a tiny village hospital in South Wales. (It's always raining in South Wales, and the sheep that run through the streets, bleating insanely, come direct from Hades.) My grandmother's first words, when she saw me in my hospital crib were, "Let 'im die, bless 'im. He looks like a rabbit skin with a head on it." Those words were not spoken in malice. Impatient to get on with things, I had arrived three months premature. I weighed just over 3 pounds.

It’s not surprising after being born into a family of string players that I developed a passion for the cello. As a small boy, my father took me to study with Hans Koebel, a German cellist who was a student of Julius Klengel. While waiting for my father’s lessons to finish, I would play football on the lawn next to the music building. So by the time I was in junior high school, not only was I an accomplished cellist, but I was the leading scorer in my school’s football conference. My parents always took me regularly to hear the symphony while my grandfather would take me to Big Ten football games. Today, I am not only a concert artist, but also an avid NFL fan.
