Male baby boomer, but don't consider myself old... I just need ironing. As for being a student of the craft, I lean more toward being a hobbyist than a prolific writer, perhaps needing a size 12 in the derriere to get my muse in gear and the time to get back to a couple novels in progress. 'Til then, feel free to stop by anytime to say hello. You'll always be greeted with a warm smile and a chilled bourbon.
