Later, he converted a chicken coop in the woods into a live-in studio and taught himself metal sculpture. That rudimentary craft expanded into the fine arts. Sculptures in bronze and fiberglass led to shows in the US, England and Thailand.

Stuart’s passion for all arts segued into: costume design (top 100 designers in the book, Fashion: 2001); modeling agency art director; fashion show designer; water feature designer, computer illustrator and a top sculptor for special effects, sets and props in the entertainment ind

“Her short path through life had been written and it was not her right to know the meaning, only the outcome.”
Stuart Land, daughters

“All football, hockey and soccer teams would now have to wear tutus.” Brian continued. “Well, I like baseball, and we don’t have to wear tutus because we don’t beat up on each other.” “Well put, son.” I gave him the thumbs up, while picturing both dugouts racing out onto the field in pink and blue taffeta tutus as they lit into each other in a massive brawl over a bad call at first base.”

“How do we end up doing whatever it is we’re doing? If people didn’t already have an affinity for a task, would they pursue it? Do people start out saying to themselves, gee, I suck at this math stuff, I guess I’ll become an astrophysicist.”

Dalene Thank you for the friendship and I look forward to reading all your books, but I am going to start with the Original blood series. I can't wait to get started.

I don't know this to be scientific fact, but I grew up under the assumption that the larger teeth were fossilized, millions of years old, and thus we found them further away from the shore, in the embankments and cliffs. I have my theory on how to find teeth: I use a surfboard. It's a genetic fact that sharks are attracted to surfboards (they thnk they're seals, I guess because they look so furry), so it's embedded in the genetic code of the teeth to vibrate when a surfboard is near. I just made a few alterations to a metal detector, and voila!...a shark tooth detector. Don't tell anyone.
