Author/Artist/Sculptor: William Westwood Jr. Born: 1948, Pittsburgh, PA.
Bill once worked as an Environmental Manager for a major telecommunications company. For over 20 years he was surrounded with mostly left-brained individuals with nary a whimsical, creative, or imaginative idea in sight. Now, in retirement, he feels he’s finally in his element and is pursuing his dreams. He strongly believes that if God blessed you with a talent, then you had better use it! He has successfully marketed his wildlife paintings and portraits since striking out on his own and recently published a young adult fantasy novel called Tales of Tremora: The Shimmering.
Education: Bill graduated cum laude from Pepperdine University with a BA in Business Science Management.
