My first story was published when I was in the fourth grade. (Mrs. Hughes ran it off on her mimeograph machine and gave a copy to everyone in the class.)
Encouraged, I decided I would become the best writer who ever lived.
I had never heard of Shakespeare.
In the years that have followed, I've toiled as a newspaper reporter, magazine editor, copywriter, and ghostwriter.
Now, if enough of you buy my books—Sabrina's Window and Precarious—I promise to leave all that behind and focus on making stuff up for your entertainment.
