I have long dreamed of being a successful writer and have accumulated a large collection of partial manuscripts and lyrical poetry over the years. I’ve spent several decades in Corporate America in a variety of roles and responsibilities, though mostly marketing. There never seemed to be time for writing. Such are the distractions of working for the Man.
An opportunity to pursue my writing dream arose when I was caught in the economy of 2009 and a corporate downsizing. With the challenges faced in a tough job market, I turned some of my attention to self-publishing (Createspace). This resulted in Bound By Birth—a fictional thriller. Reader responses and reviews have been extremely encouraging and I am working on the next two books to follow—NOT sequels—but connected in passing.
