What's the story behind your latest book?
I have been told that I tend to pick a path and go down it, whether it is the right path or not. And I tend to agree with that. The last 10 years I believe I was led onto the right path. Most people who have multiple degrees have them in different subjects. I have three degrees in Leadership. My mentor during this process was an "uber-extrovert," and it got me wondering why I was so different from him. I started studying more about introverts, and realized that we are quite under-utilized in the workforce. "Leadership for Introverts" came out of my Doctoral research paper (on leadership) and my passion for helping introverts find their place in the world.
When did you first start writing?
I've been writing for almost as long as I can remember. I started out writing fantasy and science fiction. I wrote many cliche' articles before I knew better, then got into writing RPG (role-playing game) stories in my 20's. I always had a passion for computers and technology, so starting writing more technology-based works in my late 20's. I co-authored the book "Special Edition: Using Windows 98," which was the last published writing I did for some time. In 2002 I founded a web design company and started writing content for web sites. And I wrote many college papers when I went back to school in 2006. I started writing for publication again in 2014, after founding Port Bell, a consulting firm. I started with writing for both print and online magazines while I was working on "Leadership for Introverts."
