I came to writing at a very early age, using slow times in math and science in junior high to write short stories, much to the consternation of my teachers. I have always believed that there is magic in the written word.
I spent most of my working life as a pilot wandering the globe for such diverse organizations as the Saudi royal family, several airlines and even Hustler Magazine. After all that, and some serious injuries from a car crash, I wound up in Budapest with my wife and two small children. We went there from Hawaii, so you can imagine the change! Barbara ran a network of radio stations throughout central Europe, and I played guitar in some blues bands and ran a world famous blues club.....and wrote.
Barb and I are back in the U.S. now and the kids have finished college, so I'll have even more time to write, something I am looking forward to keenly.
