About Me

So, who am I?  Well I'm glad you asked!  Here's my life's story.  The Reader's Digest version of course.

I'm the youngest (by FAR) of four.  Because of the age difference between myself and my closest sibling, as well as living in an older neighborhood, I was left to my own devices a lot when I was growing up.  Not to say I didn't have many friends, but I was just as happy lying on the floor drawing for hours on end.  For years I thought I'd be some kind of comic book artist.  That lasted up until High School, where drawing was pushed aside for playing the guitar.  That's something I still do till this very day, 21 years later. 

I admit that I didn't read much as a kid and it wasn't until I was out of college and I met my would-be wife that I really got bit by the reading bug.  She introduced me to the early James Patterson novels.  I was instantly addicted.  Not long after, I started to discover writers like Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, Steve Alten, James Rollins...the list goes on and on.  As if that wasn't bad enough, I discovered Amazon and my reading addiction really picked up.

Back when I first started reading hard core, the idea of writing did cross my mind once or twice but it was always one of those things that I thought I couldn't do.  So I didn't.  Until now.  I didn't start writing until early 2012 (probably shows, too) but I found myself enjoying it, despite the difficulty involved.  So, long story short, I'm still at it and that's where this blog came about.  It won't be all about writing, but I'm sure it'll be mostly about writing since that's my current addiction.  One I plan on sticking with.

So, that's me in a nutshell.  I'm a husband, father, Engineer by trade, guitar player, reader of books, reviewer of books, and now?  Writer of stuff. 

Guess we'll see what happens.
