Comments from the author about writing: The greatest passions in my life are my children/grandchildren, travel, photography, and writing. I can't really remember a day when I haven't written my thoughts or feelings down. I tend to even write down words or word phrases that I find interesting or unique.

Professionally I was engaged in writing, in some form, from around 1975 when I first became interested in the selling and leasing of real estate. Those early years were spent learning all about writing sales pitches, real estate advertisements and the textual content for sales brochures.

During the early '90s I spent most of my time taking computer classes, writing classes, and creating commercial newsletters. It was in a college classroom that I met the woman that would become the co-author for my first book, "Surviving College."

Writing is my biggest interest in life, except of course, my family.
