Ever since I was a little kid, I have enjoyed telling stories. It wasn’t just the relaying of information, but the immersion into another time, another realm that intrigued me about storytelling. It didn’t matter if it was answering a simple question or relaying a historical fact, I always had to make it into a story. I wrote my first “story” when I was 8 years old. I had typed it out on our old metal typewriter. By the time I was 12 I had written my first book, again on a typewriter, and had even designed the cover page. Because I didn’t really have any production or publication funds, I was only able to make one copy, and unfortunately, that single copy has been lost to time.
Over time I continued to tell stories, especially when camping, and even writing some down. However, it wasn’t till I suffered a major heart failure in 2012, that I finally focused my desire to truly write and publish a story. Within a year of receiving a pacemaker/defibrillator to keep me alive I started to write my first published book, Detriment.
I haven’t stopped writing since. It has not been easy, and I still have a long way to go, but I am grateful every day that I have this opportunity. It is a blessing I will never forget.
