Nowhere worth being
I am a 40ish Doctor of Mathematics. (See how I did that? Because I'm not really 40 yet, I don't have to update my profile for years!)
I grew up in central New York on a picturesque lake in the middle of wine country. Sadly, I am not one for boats or wine, but that doesn't make the area any less beautiful in the summer and fall.
I have always wanted to write, quite literally since the age I learned to write. I remember being six years old and writing an episodic story about a turtle named Herman. I had a strange fascination with turtles when I was a young child. Why is it I never got one as an adult?
I misspent my young adulthood learning and teaching Tae Kwon Do and French Fencing. I love learning, which is one reason I love writing. No matter how good you get, there's always more to learn. It would be nice to learn about this stuff for the rest of my life.
I eventually gave up the martial arts to study mathematics at the University at Albany, SUNY. While working on my PhD, I learned to swing dance, and taught calculus. After graduating, my friends have insisted on calling me "Doctor". I suppose I can't blame them, after all, it is my fault.
I have a bad habit of exuding snarky humor, especially late in the day. Please forgive me if you think I say anything off color. Or don't forgive me and just keep reading. It is the same price.
As for my writing, I am not so delusional as to think that what I write will be inspirational, but I do hope it's fun. My only goal is to make the characters come as alive to the reader as they are to me.
