I started writing when I was in high school, I wrote just for me. I stopped writing until about 1990 when I decided, while unemployed, that I wanted to write and make a living at it. I wrote for several magazines local to British Columbia and one national magazine. I was paid for all my articles. At that time I started writing fiction, short stories, and one novel. Later, I started a bio on myself and a novel using that bio. To this day I have not finished either of my two novels though I do work on them from time-to-time.
