Growing up in central WI, I learned to love reading from my Mother. She would buy me the comic books of the day and encourage me to read, as she did each afternoon. Eventually I learned, and never looked back.
I first tried writing around the age of 9 and have toyed with the notion throughout my adult life. I've always been my worst critic and, until 2014, I never tried to share or publish my work.
