I think growing up surrounded by books, and then pursuing a career in the film industry, have really been the major influences in my life. It has taught me not to limit my mind but to use it to its fullest.
I have never taken a course in Writing. It is just a hobby of mine.
I have practiced and achieved control of my mind quite well. With this came the ability to continue a dream over a period of months. A New Dawning is a dream I continued for 9 months and am now putting to words.
