All I have ever wanted was to be a writer. Unfortunately, the editors have decreed otherwise. But 'if it doesn't kill you....' The years of rejection have forced me to walk in paths and directions I probably would not have if I'd been successful, to probe the limits of my ability and find a way past them and to look at things with an ever more critical and creative eye. The best is yet to come.
