Writing must be in my genes. I have a relative who started writing when she was a child, and she’s now one of Amazon’s best-selling authors. Yet Amazon would ban all of my political books. Oh, the irony.
My natural talent for writing revealed itself in elementary school, which was fortunate, because I sucked at math. When I was in my late twenties, something clicked, and I realized that I wanted to write and create things as a profession.
After moving from West Dakota to the Alaska wilderness to the urban wilderness of Seattle, I began learning how to make websites. But the real winner was the content I wrote for them. My traffic was booming before I was hit by the dot.com bust. At the same time, hackers began attacking my websites, and I also found it more difficult to keep up with the ever changing technology.
I also had too many interests and goals. How could one find enough time to engage in research and writing, then create state-of-the-art websites to display your work?
Eventually, I switched my allegiance from websites to epubs. Then I discovered that I could have my cake and eat it, too; I embraced WordPress.
I now have over fifty websites and a stable full of books under development. Semi-retired from my day job, I have more time and resources to devote to my writing projects. The years 2021-2022 are going to be among the busiest years of my life, and I hope to get the bulk of my projects finished during this period.
Though I still have a passion for Nature and the outdoors, most of my time and energy is channeled into politix these days. My political studies and activism also nurtured a growing interest in psychology and philosophy.
My long-range goals include getting some of my projects translated into foreign languages, particularly Chinese, German, Spanish, Arabic and Farsi. Unfortunately, I’m on a tight budget. Anyone who can recommend translators or publishers who might have an interest in my projects is welcome to contact me.
