About Me
I'm a 20 year Navy Veteran, having served on Submarines from 1974 through 1993, after attending training for two years. I currently work as a Training Specialist for a major Communications company in the Chicago suburbs. I love to travel and meet new people, and enjoy photography as well as writing. I loved Alf when it was on TV, still do, and have a couple of seasons on DVD Hence my 'location' above.... *Smile*
Type of Writer
Sporadic at best. I spend more time writing/editing course materials at work than I do writing original stories or poems.
Writing Style
Whatever hits my muse to get me going.
Interests
Music (but can't get into today's music, stuck in the 60's through the 80's), writing, travel, meeting new people, helping people, and photography.
