Always loved a good story. My dad could spin a great yarn, but my sister got all the brains so I didn’t start reading for my own enjoyment until age 15, when I discovered science fiction, and that was the beginning of the end. Or in the case of our current stories the end of the beginning, if you take my meaning.
I didn’t even like writing, but I composed a lot of songs when I would get really depressed or really angry. Once I had lived long enough to have something to really be angry about, the words started to pour out.
So now when I want to write all I need to do is kick something, or fall down somewhere, grab a bottle of red wine and away I go.
I exist to keep the editors in work. Hope you enjoyed this latest outburst.
I currently work as the Arts & Culture Project Officer of a large city council – by day and moonlight as theatre company president, performing artist, husband and father of two teens. You can see why I need the red wine.. and the outbursts.
