My bio is nether all that long or all that interesting. I live in Bradenton, Florida, with my lovely wife, Cheryl, two cats, and just a short drive from my daughter, Michelle, my son-in-law, Andreas and the two greatest grandchildren in the world ¬ Nic and Sam. Prior to retiring, I paid for my writing material by working both as a sales trainer and sales representative for a major Pharmaceutical Corporation.
As far for my education, I have two degrees but neither is in English. Since graduating from college though, I have attended two classes on writing at the University of Pittsburgh, taken several courses on line from The Writers College, Gotham Writer’s Workshop, and have completed a correspondence course, worth seven college credits, from the Long Ridge Writers School. For assistance and advice beyond the academics, I belong to several writers’ groups, and I have attended numerous writers’ conferences. In addition, I have read at least fifteen books on writing including the two best books ever written on the subject: Sol Stein’s, Stein on Writing and How to Grow a Novel. Mr. Stein also produced a set of tapes from one of his fiction weekends that I keep in my car and have listened to at least fifteen times.
Knowing that my literary education may not be as intense as some. Once my novel was complete, I utilized the services of a noted book doctor to help make my book even better.
In January of 2006 I had my first publishing success. One of my short stories, 30 Days, was chosen for inclusion in the January 2006 edition of the on line magazine, Combat. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to have other short stories published in several regional magazines.
Since my book, A GOD OF FOREIGN LANDS, is complete; I now spend all my spare time working on a new book, Echo’s of Glory.
To all those wonderful people who have bought or will buy my book ¬ thank you so very much. I hope you have as much fun reading my story as I did writing it.
