I am a father of four (though, I do have 3 other children...long story). I work as a digital press operator for an amazing company and love what I do. I have owned two patents, but I was not able to finance them or further continue with them. I tried to start a business but quickly found it to be a bit more difficult then thought. Nearly two years ago from this date 1/26/15 I decided to give writing a shot. My first book was an autobiography. It was the most unprofessionally written book ever imagined, but it did open my love for writing and I since have taken it very seriously. I have always had a creative mind so it is nice to pick it apart and put it to better use. Knowing that I can publish for free, I figured why not do something I enjoy. It is a lot of work none the less and I am constantly learning as I go. By the way, starting out in writing, I truly would not recommend beginning with an autobiography/memoir. I believe those are for the great ones who have already been well established etc. I only wrote mine because again, it was free to do and I was tired of telling stories over and over to random people, friends and family. I have since moved on with my writing and after completing my first novel which is 1/3 of the 'Swanson' trilogy along with and a second novel (which was a huge challenge as it was not my genre) with another brilliant and talented author in TJ Weeks. It is a special edition of his original novel 'Obsessed with the Kill'. As of 5/22/16, I have completed seven other books and a few other co-authored books as well. I have been busy but look to complete the final book of the 'Swanson' trilogy in the next year while I finish up on another five short stories of characters from the novel and compile in 'Bloodline Series Vol.2'. Also should have my second autobiography out, I am hoping by the end of 2016 which is when I plan on writing my first horror book titled 'Gemini'.
