In the heart of the midwest, we're surrounded by cornfields, soybean crops, and wheat galore. The prairie is tranquil. Dreamlike. And I love it here.
But I've always had a great desire to travel the world. The prairie is home, and much of the world can seem so alien in comparison. Being far from the ocean, I was awestruck the first time I took a plane overseas, and when I walked along the shores of the Emerald Isles. It was so beautiful, and refreshing. I wanted to see more. I wanted to see as much of the world as I could. I still do.
This desire to travel has often been coupled with two of my other greatest desires. To write, and to be part of something greater than myself. I love to write because even when I can't travel, a world can be created with just a pen and some paper.
The concept of the Detective Games series, for example, was something that really excited me, because of how diverse it could be. I envisioned detectives all across the globe, exotic new lands, and thrilling cases to be solved.
My desire to be part of something greater than myself... that's what truly drives me.

" Life isn't living in the moment, it's making moments worth living.” I do agree with that quote but I think it would have been more meaningful if it was "life isn't just living in the moment, it's making moments worth living" truly each one of us should know that we're living in tomorrow's good old days, thus the question "how would you like to be remembered"
No spoiler, well explained, Zechariah does make it clear that a life worth living is that which is lived for others.
