Growing up in a small town in Wisconsin, I have had
wanderlust as long as I can remember, occasionally even
being called a gypsy. Having had such a hard time settling
down in one place probably dictated my entering the construction
field, working primarily as a pipefitter and boilermaker.
I continued to follow the construction work from state
to state, living alone more often than not.
reading has always been my favorite entertainment; as
long as I had a book, I was content. My first non-school
books were almost exclusively science-fiction; however,
I occasionally read other genres as well. I very seldom
bought a book strictly because of the author's name, although
I admire the masters of the field. Asimov's books will
never be forgotten by any science-fiction fan. He may
be the only one mentioned here, but there are many others.
One thing I have learned after reading thousands of books
though, the name on the cover was not a guarantee of an
interesting book. I have read books by little known authors
that were equally as good as those of renown. After reading
some books that were not so good and having acquired a
computer, I decided to try my hand, and imagination, at
writing. I have by this time though, semi-settled in Las
Vegas, with my wife and two cats.
