Jan Griffith, Sr


I am 69 years of age and I started putting my life history in print maybe 20 years ago on an 8088 computer and then i got away from it for a long time and about a year ago I learned of Smashwords.com from my granddaughters pen pal and it rekindled my need to finish my books and then I found a few more areas to write the history of and that brought me to publish my first book.
I am married with two children and 9 grand children and am a retired Parts person and trying to enjoy life without having to be at a place of work everyday. My wife and I have been raising a large garden and selling some of our crops in our front yard.
I have in the neighborhood of dozen books yet to be finished and published to Smashwords specs, I know I will enjoy finishing those books too! jansr..
