Hi I'm Neil. I could never fit in. At school i was awkward & clumsy. To straight for the hips & to hip for the straights. I had friends but most of my time was spent reading novels by Peter Benchley, William Blatty, Issac Asimov, Arthur C Clark & Stephen King. Whatever my dad was reading i was reading. My past has brought me to my future and in order to be a good writer you must first be a good reader. Not that i am good…yet….but i have ambition, a want to write something not just good, but great. But no matter what i will keep on banging the keys, taking the good days with the bad, honing my skills & awaiting inspiration for that one story.
