I can’t remember a time in my life when I haven’t been writing and making stuff up - much to the dismay of my parents who called it 'lying'. I’ve had the great fortune of living in many different countries in the world - my native Europe, South East Asia and Canada - and all of the experiences and impressions I have seen find their way into my stories. And let’s face it, my friends were getting somewhat tired of my endless tales! I am impatient, intense and thorough.
I grew up in a little town in Germany, the kind of town nobody leaves because no one can see that far. I don’t have many hobbies beyond digital art, reading and making stuff up. I’ve spent my life reading books, analyzing and writing them by day and night. I love sitting in my sun room, looking out over the lake Ontario, reading, wondering how I would have written that story.
I like beer. Bavarian beer you’ve likely never heard of. I also like jumping out of perfectly good airplanes - I usually bring a parachute.
What makes a writer tick? Many people want to know that very thing. Here is an interview with Country Interviews Online:
Originally I started out writing romance novels, and when that got somewhat out of hand, the "Soundmaster Romance Series" was born.
Romance novels with a Country Music Theme
Last count I had written over ten of them. I am working on a list of excerpts for you to read from the first three stories in the series, "Guitars & Cadillacs", "Long Way Home", & "This Time". I am hoping to add a full list of excerpts soon. They were all written during 2000 - 2005 and are a great and entertaining read. Head on over to the "Books" section of the website to see more details on the stories and - most importantly - the reviews!
Good bye romance writing
After a while the romance angle got a little old, and I realized that in 'real life' I was working with all of these quirky interesting characters, doing book keeping and admin work for startup companies, so I tried my hand at a couple of adventure/crime stories with the "Shadow Dancer", and finally, my most recent work:-
The Cannabis Preacher
I hope the title intrigues you! I have just finished 'Sermon One', and this one was so much fun to write! A fascinating look at the rise and fall of a Medical Marijuana manufacturer. I am sure I will get a lot of requests for this one! As of the writing of this, a sequel is already rearing its head!
I am always writing something! See below, and follow me on my blog.
