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.

WRITE FROM THE INSIDE OUT
I believe in the power of telling our personal and family stories. These are our heroes' journeys and by telling them we honor ourselves and the people we have come from. An important early task for the writer is go inside and find the story that is worth telling. The story is not about "nice" words; it is about honest words, visceral words.
LIFESTORIES FEED US
Stories have always played an important role in my life. I grew up in a three-generation home with paternal grandparents who lived upstairs. I heard tales of my extended family and their history recounted by the family storyteller, my grandmother Ledoux. These stories were a food to my soul. I could not get enough of them and ... read more

I’ve always been a big fan of time travel and super heroes. And all sci-fi/fantasy stuff in general. I wasn’t into comic books specifically as much, per se. But I kept up with the super hero world through their video games, TV shows, and movies.
I’ve always had an active imagination. When I was younger, I used to tell people I actually had a time machine in real life. Some of my friends played along. “Oh yeah, we just got back from the dinosaur era! That was so cool! We almost got eaten by a T-rex!” Some people, on the other hand, just looked at me like I was crazy. Whatever. I was having fun.
I started actively writing when I was 14 years old. It started out just for fun. Something I’d ... read more

I have been teaching French and German for ten years and have been learning languages for most of my life. I fell in love with languages pretty much instantly, thanks to some inspiring (and crazy!) teachers during my own time at school.
I joined Aldridge School, a successful and popular comprehensive school in the West Midlands, in 2003 and I am still there. For the last few years I have been responsible for Modern Languages at the school; this has given me an even deeper insight into language learning.
