I am a writer living in Chicago.
At an early age, I was able to achieve national recognition from the SWA, the same writing program that has honored Truman Capote, Sylvia Plath and Joyce Carol Oates.
Majoring in film studies at Columbia College, I went on to write the screenplay to “The Park Attitude” and co-wrote the screenplay to “Upstairs on Safari” with C.J. O’Brien.
When earnings proved to be lacking, I put my writing on hold to focus on a career in sales, where I spent several years in the telecom industry sporting a John Wilkes Booth haircut.
After leaving the telecom industry, I became “The Baby Boomer Blogger”, supplying the internet with random musings and twisted observations.
Why has my vocation undergone such a transformation? Sometimes life’s pursuits are forced to change direction. Why do you think they have Oktoberfest in September?
