Hmmm - how does one craft a writing biography for one that has not spent a life writing? I'll give it a shot.

I knew I wanted to be a writer when I was eighteen. I started writing when I was 56. In the years between I got married, had children, got divorced, got married again, had grandchildren and spent more than thirty years as a Government bureaucrat. Exciting - I know.

There is good news and bad news in that. The bad news of course is that I spent my life working at a career other than the one I wanted to have. The good news is that I garnered enough life experiences to make my writing more meaningful than it would have been as an eighteen year old.

Despite starting late, I have enjoyed some writing success (more on that later) and am rapidly improving in the craft. Best of all, I am not dedicating my mind and time to something that I find worthwhile. Contest success includes:
