As a young kid listening to too much Pink Floyd, Blondie & Pretenders albums, I always wanted to work in bookstores. This dream came true and I clerked or helped manage several bookstores over a 20 year period. As a teenager discovering writing, and the writing of fiction and poetry, I harbored a love of creating good stories. Then I became an author too. The love of good books and stories has always been a curious companion.
