I'm 63 and happily married. I was once a working guitarist, but don't play much now. I spiked and lined track for the CPR in the wildest section of the Canadian Rockies, built wilderness trails high in the Purcells, pulled lumber on a greenchain, was a heavy duty mechanic apprentice, planted a million trees, worked in forestry, drove a cab in Vancouver, and practised as a physical therapist for 13 years. I raced road and mountain bikes and XC skis. That's for a start. Got bored of all that and now I'm an IT guy. Through it all, reading kept me sane. Now writing keeps me sane. That, and the thought of retirement. I have a lot of stories.
