My boardgame and Cliffs Notes Tale prior to becoming a writer and full time RV’er…
I was a fat kid in high school. I had a very small circle of friends, it’s smaller now, so that hasn’t changed. I have been writing since my angst filled teenage years. I started writing because I wanted to express those dark thoughts that rampantly took over my overzealous head in times that I thought I was scorned.
If you struggle with low self-esteem, you’ll understand. If you don’t, I hope you never have to.
I write horror because horror is everywhere. Like a monster lingering outside the window, waiting to pounce in and take you into the lair it lives in the woods. I write everything, and have never hidden behind a fake name, or fake internet accounts. I know that I fucking don’t do social media right, and I don’t care. I do my life, and don’t live for others. I’ve made some connections in the world of writing, but am plagued with often thinking that I’m doing it all wrong.
My story is this, I’m a writer. I fathered seven children. I’m a loyal, devoted husband, a son, a brother and fall under any of the other nouns that may describe me. Parenthood didn’t define me, it strengthened me, and taught me that sometimes a sabbatical from that which I loved, writing, was necessary for a greater good. Did it hurt my career as a writer? Yes, because writing was always second to a job, parenthood and being a provider. That sacrifice was worth the effort and time spent.
So, I’m back to the boardgame, sometimes under-animated and misunderstood, but still ME. Marketing, writing, putting the work in and hoping to touch people with words, whether they are about monsters or real life.
