I am retired and spending quiet time writing for several hours a day. I am older than dirt but just the same I'll stay in the game.
In my working life, I had 3 careers: Administrative Assistant, District Manager for a restaurant chain, a stint as a draftee in the US Army during the Vietnam War.
My bride and I have three sons all of whom served in the Marine Corps.
I started writing when I was a paperboy a few centuries ago. It was a two-mile plus trek delivering and returning. 5 o'clock in the morning hot or rain or snow - 30 degrees in the winter.
