I have been writing since twelve or thirteen. Poems mostly. I have loved reading since I used to sneak my mom's romance novels in about the fifth or sixth grade. I had gotten so that I would go through a novel in a day. I have also written a couple of short stories and always wished I had the time to commit to writing more. In college I wanted to change my major to English. Even though my English instructor felt that I was good, he discouraged me because of the 'low writer's pay'. So 20 years and an Air Force career later, I'm still wondering 'what if'....So hear I am, finally with time to write more.....more poetry and hopefully a novel.
