I was born when I was very young. By the age of one, I was walking and talking. My mother spent the rest of her life trying to get me to sit down and shut up. To wit, she gave me a pencil and a piece of paper. Whether or not the rest is history is, apparently, up to you. Be kind.

I am a Navy veteran, musician, and a retired air traffic controller. I have dabbled in songwriting, movie-making, and (yes) comedic performance. I have an album entitled, One Swell Foop, wherein I wrote seven of the nine songs. They're like stand up put to music.

I have attended Midwestern State University and, most recently, the University of Oklahoma where I studied professional writing.

The Hero's Journey. I go around the circle and see if anything motivates me. I try not to jump around in the story when I write, but sometimes I would 'just rather be writing this scene'. If that doesn't work I do menial tasks and let my subconscious work through it.(less)
