As a small boy I was obsessed with concocting stories, songs and even poems. Like many wishing to make a living from creative writing, unfortunately the hard facts of life take over and "proper jobs" become the norm. Having hundreds of pages, stored away, mostly handwritten, way before the time when computers were commonplace, my first success came when I completed a movie length screenplay, when living in Los Angeles. Much of the narrative loosely based on my life experiences up to that date. But again the need to "put food on the table" swamped my creative ability for several years. Eventually, with help from number of friends, I found the support to become a full time author.
