Hello, I'm Ditchdoctor, or just Ditch for short. I'm an old paramedic so if you go into the ditch, that's where I go to doctor you. But not for long, I will retire at the end of July and go back to teaching at a couple of local colleges. I have written my first novel which is currently in the Quarter finalists with the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards. They will narrow it down from the original 10,000 entries to the final 100, 50 in the adult fiction and 50 in the young adult fiction category in just four more days. I never expected to make it this far, but would be lying if I said I'm not hoping to make the next cut. Even if I don't, it will look great on a query letter. I'm 3/4 of the way through the sequel. I look forward to meeting everyone here.
