Writing is the way we open our minds, our hearts, and our souls to the rest of the world.

Background Information

My first attempt at writing was in the third grade. Our teacher had us take the list of spelling words for that week and write a story using those words. Much to my teacher's chagrin I elected to write something befitting "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" (that was one of my favorite TV shows back in the day). She told my parents the story was certainly imaginative, but a bit too gruesome for the other third graders.

Eventually, after a few aborted attempts at writing short stories, I gravitated to screenwriting (I hold an MFA in screenwriting). The idea of writing a book was simply too overwhelming, too intimidating. Oddly enough, when I finally worked up the audacity to write a book, it turned out to be a non-fiction piece dealing with religion. 

Insofar as "major influences" are concerned, there are none. The only positive influence has been good writing, in whatever form it may take. 

I truly admire a good wordsmith.
