    I was born in 1942 but started living in 1947 when I learned to fish. I've been hooked ever since. I've taken jobs and quit jobs because the fishing looked better somewhere else.

    I sold my first magazine article when I was 11, another at 12 or so then went lots of years before selling a third one.

    I've kept a tape (not tape anymore) recorder in my glove box and by my bed for at least 40 years to record thoughts and ideas lest they escape. I have several note bools packed with pieces of tales, stuff written in PFS Write that I can no longer open and finally tales written using MS Word. I don't write every day but try to write some
    at least several days per week.

    Fishing, boating, grand kids and writing. The order of importance sometimes changes with the season and the availability of my grand kids.
