Extended

My love affair with reading started at an early age.  My love affair with writing has been an ongoing process.  I have dabbled with writing lyrics and short stories over the years and have only decided to become serious about writing as of late.  I have read many great works of fiction over my lifetime, both literary and not so literary. I become lost in both and simply love the written word.

I have always been fascinated with mysteries and thrillers.  This most likely came about from reading Hardy Boys books as a child, and when I ran out of those, Nancy Drew books (I’m OK admitting that).  Having family in law enforcement fueled my love of mysteries and thrillers even more.   So here I am, a husband, father of two beautiful boys who keep me young, caretaker of pets, embarking on an adventure in writing and taking it very seriously.  I am technical by profession, my grammar is horrendous (despite my mother being an English Major and writing for a career), I’ve been told I use adverbs too much, and I have a constant battle going on with left brain/right brain issues.  I am overthinking some of the process and winging it with other parts and seeing it where it lands me.  More importantly, I am writing and I love it.

Hope you enjoy.

Bill
