From a very early age I had a love of books. Actually, it was really comic books. Like many boys my age I loved seeing Superman the Krytonian, flying through the sky with the bright red cape or the incredible Hulk in his emerald green power smash through army tanks. I didn’t read the comics though, but simple marveled at the pictures and then tried to create them myself. I had no idea how to move from one panel box to the next. The minute I learned how to crack this cryptic puzzle was one of the happiest days of my life.
I also developed and love all things artistic including poetry and storytelling, which are two important prerequisite for a writer.
As a young man, like many my age, I had questions that needed answering and reading seemed to be the best way of quenching this thirst. How else would one find out how a heavy thing like an airplane flies or what the hell is shadow boxing. An encyclopedia.
Credit also goes to some great teachers.
My inquisitive mind led me to the interest of many things from sports, music, drama and art. Growing up with two competing brothers also I might have tried to carve out my own space within the household.
Now a father of two great children I'm amazed everyday at the different world they grow up unlike the one I remember.
One of my goals as a young man was to become an author and I feel privileged and incredibly appreciative to be pursuing my dream.
