We grow writers!

 A little about me.

I grew up in Oxford, NY which is how I met Penny.

I've since made it as far as Rochester but I've got my eye on Southern California, because my sweetheart relocated there last May and has invited me to join him.

I wrote my first book when I was about 5. It was titled Mic and Mac the Bunnies, a picture book, and the s's were backwards.

Today I make a living as a corporate marketing hack where I daily enjoy the tremendous pleasure of having my work edited by committee.

I have two published non-fiction books, the first of which did rather well for niche non-fic -- I served as the writer on a 2-person team with Terry Ryan, a professional dog trainer in Washington State. We split the royalties, I netted maybe 5 or 6 grand between 2004 and 2009. Royalties have now slowed to a trickle.

I also have three completed and unpublished novels, and one WIP. Novel #3 got as far as agents requesting to read a full, but no takers. My WIP is a different direction for me, I'm going for light satire vs. the more chick-lit genre-y stuff I tried previously.

And I love to golf :-)
