Truck driver by day, (got to pay the bills somehow.) but when evening rolls around I don my lucky Wilson cap and pound away at the keyboard. I have wanted to write since I read my first novel at fourteen. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. And, yes I admit a bit of influence from the fictional character John-boy Walton. At fifty-eight years of age I look back and wonder how I got off track with my dream. I have no illusions about my self. I am forever learning and growing in this chosen obsession.... I love writing and am having the time of my life.
