I am living proof you're never too old to get in the game. I first tried my hand at writing when Star Trek: TNG began open acceptance for screenplays. I've loved Trek since I was a kid, but the open policy closed before I finished my story. I converted the story to a novel, found an agent for new writers and submitted my manuscript only to have the door shut by the publisher. Like many, I was distraught after so much work, but years later I found the joy of writing once again while dating my wife. I wrote her over a hundred poems during our long distance courtship and she encouraged me to get back to the keyboard. The magic of the internet brought us together and gave me the venue to share stories with friends and family. The opportunity of blogging came later and all the while I read and utilized workbooks to hone my skill. I've always been inspired by great films, books and television. I have tremendous respect for those who take on the task of adapting novels to screenplays, but inside I wanted to build worlds from my own imagination, shape my own characters and employ the elements I loved best. The traditional publishing industry is harder to break into than ever before, but just like the magic that found me the love of my life, the internet and self-publishing provides a voice of written wonder to the world and I'm thrilled to be a part of that magic.
