why write?

I've always wanted to write, but never got around to. Last year (2017), for some reason I cannot quite explain, maybe it was the stress of my daily job, or some vacuum in me, I finally decided I would sit down and start writing.

My first book began in August, and by December I had written over 90,000 words and actually finished the first draft. It was an amazing feeling, and I have several new ideas to pursue.

I've realized that I enjoy writing. There is something about a screen, a keyboard, and just your mind let loose to paint pictures and tell a story. I don't know if I will be successful or if even ten people will read my books--but it doesn't matter so much. It just makes me happy.

I live in Texas with my spouse and child. I help companies with their business problems during the day, and I write words during the flight.
