The information required here, which I believe is of importance, is, as stated, my motivation behind my writing.
For the last two years, I have been assisting a number of writers/authors with ideas and suggestions to market their writings, promote them and in designing authors' websites, as far as my talents allowed such endeavors.
This has brought me face-to-face with many of the difficulties authors face in the present publishing environment and I have clearly developed an empathy with aspiring writers and a desire to overcome obstacles in an effort to bring their thoughts and stories to market.
Surprisingly, I also discovered my own desire to write and to share and I now believe that this is simply a result of other writers making their influences work in a manner that they had not perhaps anticipated. Hence, my article on "Writers and Rebels" is, for me, a sort of introduction, clearly indicating that I have been infected with the "writing bug." For better or for worse, I have many writers on AuthorsDen to thank for that - I sincerely hope we will not all be very sorry!
In general, I have a business background, specializing in International Finance for multi-national corporations and, in those functions, have traveled quite a bit here in USA, in Europe and Skandinavian countries.
