Background Information

From childhood, I have been fascinated by stories. My dad told us tales of his childhood filled with fantastic creatures and amazing feats. Were they real? As an adult I realize that most of them were not. Did they entertain us? You bet they did. I loved hearing dad tell stories of picking apples with his per snake or flying airplanes and being rescued from tree landings after being shot down. He used to show the spot on his shoulder where he had been shot and the bullet passed right through! Always amazed, we listened to every word rapt with anticipation.

This is how my love for stories began, and how I fell in love with fantasy.

In the second grade I entered a poetry contest and won the top prize. Subconsciously, I felt this meant I could write, and I did so ever after.

I have written columns, feature stories, done interviews, been a newscaster for a radio station, done gazillion ads of every kind through my own marketing firm for twenty years, and also ghost written articles for major magazines and chapters in best sellers.

Throughout my life, a statement made by the famous Italian artist Bernini stuck with me. He said no one should write a book before they are fifty-five years old because they would not have the wisdom till then.

So I waited and promptly in the month I turned fifty-five years old, I began to complete my first book. It was published in August of that year.

I have continued to expand on the dream. The book GreeHee The Journey of Five - Tales of Tamoor Book One contains techniques for living hidden in the perilous tale of adolescent dragon GreeHee's journey to Wizards' Web.

Though sometimes I feel like I am crawling along the path of authorship, I realize that I have long crawled along the path of enlightenment and it is a wondrous journey, so it must all right to crawl for a while.

I have been enriched by the love of so many beings from minerals to animals to human. I am blessed. I wish for everyone on the planet to find peace in their hearts and discover love for themselves. Not the mushy human love, but the abundant contentment that comes from loving yourself.

I am grateful to be here, and if you have read this far, I am grateful to share with you!
