I am a computer systems analyst, who worked in a couple of shops, and had a consulting business in the 80s.
I changed professions and became a nurse in order to look after my father after his stroke. After he passed, I kept nursing.
But I have always been a writer. I have been published in Dragon Magazine and several short-lived gaming magazines. I have always been a reader, taking in everything from comics to textbooks, westerns to Harlequin romances, mysteries to horror. I have always been a fan, analyzing my favorite works and listening to critics and experts.
I self-published my first comic in 1994. I have been honing my skills ever since, creating mini comics and working on scripts.
