Male baby boomer, but don't consider myself old... I just need ironing. As for being a student of the craft, I tend to be more of a hobbyist that needs a jolt of flammable inspiration and/or a size 12 in the derriere to get my muse in gear. Although published in '08 (soon to be a feature length film by a well-established Int'l production co., a surprise I hope will encourage others to keep the quill active), perhaps one day I'll get back to a couple novels in progress. 'Til then, be a friend and stop by anytime to say hello. You'll always be greeted with a warm smile and a chilled bourbon.
