Joined 5 years ago from Reno, Nevada




Having been batted about by an, at best, indifferent economy these last few years, I have decided to embark on that bottom drawer dream I have always had…to write…and to make money for the effort.  We shall see.  Regardless, I’m looking forward to the journey as it has been a path too long deferred for simply fearing that first step.

I will be bringing an eclectic and polyglot-ish  (yes, redundant) range of interests to these new tasks and, fortified by copious amounts of coffee, I shall attempt to exorcize those demons planted long ago by a caring English teacher who noted that, while the pilot-light appeared broken, there was at least a pilot-light.  I hope you enjoy my scribbling.
