Meet the Author

When you're a child and you make up stories, you're called a "liar". When you're an adult and you make up stories, you're called an "Author". I never realized I had a talent for making up interesting tales, but I should have. All the telling signs were present early on. As a child, I had little action figures from various kid television shows. Like most little boys, I divided the figures into good guys and bad guys and they figured out ways to defeat the other during the course of an afternoon. The clue that I never picked up on was the fact that I had a third side that played the, so called, good guys and bad guys against each other. The conflicts didn't last for one afternoon. They typically lasted about 3 days. To make a long story short, I have never nourished my creativity until recently. In doing so, I have uncovered a vault of originality that will now be unleashed into the world.
