I have been writing for as long as I can remember. It was always such a big part of my life, that it was like background music-I never knew it was there. I majored in Music, at first, but a chance encounter with Moby Dick changed everything for me. Mark Twain and Ray Bradbury had made the soil fertile, but it was Melville who forced me out of the ground and made me want to study and write books. I read an average of 50 books a year, and that's not bad for someone with dyslexia. I have seven books in publication, ranging from a travel memoir to children's horror stories.
