When I was a high-school student…many years ago…I absolutely hated writing. But I guess it’s one of those things where it sucks when you’re forced to do it, but sort of fun when you decide to do it on your own!
I grew up on a farm in rural Manitoba, the part of Canada that really DOES get cold in the winter. After finishing college, I moved to Toronto Ontario where I settled into a job training new employees at a tech support center. Man, am I glad that’s over! Currently in a more professional job working with fun, nerdy technology.
It was about two years after I started reading Traks that I thought I’d try writing my own. I always hated English class, and the only writing I really did was work-related. So I was pretty amazed when I finished one story…then two…then three. Next thing I know, I’ve got a series! (And now I’ve got two…) Thanks to everybody who sent in their positive feedback, Silverado wouldn’t have gone from story to series without it.
