You could say the writing bug bit me early. When I was in sixth grade, I was required to write a four line poem in ten minutes. When i read the poem, my teacher was very encouraging. However, I didn't write anything creative again until 2001. I wrote sixty songs/poems, some of which I had copyrighted. I started a novel, but personal priorities took me away from it.
I'm glad to have my first volume of stories published on Smashwords. I plan a second volume, as well as publishing some poetry.
My writing style is influenced by letters I've written over the years to my sister, who says "You write like you talk." My writing interests include aircraft, the underworld, travel, romance and sports.
I am retired from the United States Department of Defense, after 33 years of service. I live in East Tennessee, love my mountains, and also pick and sing a little.
