I’ve been a bean counter for close to thirty years now. I started working at a bank in 1983, as a teller. Before that I went to school, and studied German and French. Off and on over the years I have tried administrative type jobs and have been less than successful. The thing I missed most was the people contact. Take away people and I wilt like a cut flower without water on a hot summer day. So for now I continue as a teller (bean counter).
When it comes to the author end of this, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t create stories. Once, when I was very young, my siblings asked me to compose a story when we were playing school. This was a treat for me, as neither of my sisters appreciated my imagination nor writing talents. Maybe it was just a different attitude and philosophy of life. As time went on I kept writing. Until 2003, I concentrated on short stories. That year, for the first time, I attended a writers’ conference. From there the dream to write books has grown.
These days I am polishing my first Science Fiction novel. Soon it will be ready to send out into the world.
