Retired from 23 years Army special forces and now I build reproduction mahogany speedboats in my own shop in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. But I find that I also enjoy writing, and have had a few of my articles published -and for money. Mostly I write about our travel adventures. My wife and I have rowed open boats all over Europe and I've written humorous accounts of these adventures. I'd love to tell you folks about these- but I'm still in this damn purgatory you guys condemn every new writer to.
