I have always been a storyteller. I wanted to be able to write my stories as well as I could tell them. I studied writing in my spare time for many years since I was still working at my day job in commercial real estate. I self-published my first book FIRST LOVE LAST DANCE which is a memoir about my mother, Elise. She fell in love for the first time at 19. Peter was his name. She became engaged to him at 21 but didn't marry him until she was 75. This story has caught media attention from NBC and CNN. See videos on my website www.firstlovelastdance.com."

Even if you erase it later. This is just priming your pump, so to speak(less)
Nancy Rossman introspection and reflection. Plus just making sense of this crazy world.

“There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it. It is like falling in love.”
Christopher Morley, Pipefuls

Quentin R. Bufogle
“As with most things, my approach to writing has been entirely ass-backwards. I first had to become everything but a writer -- exhaust all possibilities. I had to come to it on my knees. Only when there was truly nothing left, was I able to become a writer.”
Quentin R. Bufogle

“I have never been convinced there's anything inherently wrong in having fun. ”

“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”
