It was at a very early age when I, Douglas Esper, (your friendly neighborhood author) realized I had a passion for the written word. As a youngster, I couldn't get enough books to satisfy my desire to read and to this day, I still own many books my parents got for me. In school I gravitated toward reading and writing to the point teachers grew impatient with me for writing stories in class.

Ideas are constantly running through my brain and I don't think I have enough life left to get them all on paper, let alone the ideas I'll have in the future. now, that's not to say that every idea is awesome and would make a compelling novel, but they might work for song lyrics, short stories, blog posts or even never completed backstory for a character.

I will add that I feel disconnected from the buzzing hive and hub of society and also from myself at times. adding those two things together, I think I express myself better with stories than I do with actions or my own words. and, I prefer it that way. spending the time to translate what I feel and observe into a fictional story is a fascinating process that I am excited to be a part of and learn from.(less)
