I started writing in 1990 when I was recovering from Gall Bladder Surgery. I wrote the first three chapters of my book "On Account of a Wish" on a Commodore 64 computer with a 5" floppy disc. Then I went back and finished my career in the US Navy. During that time, I transferred the book over to an IBM in Word Perfect on a 3 1/2" floppy, then again to MS Word. I retired in 2001 and started another career  It took another 8 years for me to pick the book back up. I started writing on my lunch hour and typing what I wrote on weekends. It took 2 years to finish. The time lapse turned out to be a good thing. Not only had I changed, so had technology. I got it published right away from a less than reputable publisher, which after a year, I was able to buy back my rights. By that time, I had developed a game and wrote another book based on it called "The Monarch of Pyramid Mountain." I then tried my had at writing a detective story in 1st person. "Subliminal Target" was a challenge, but a lot of fun to write. All 3 of these books are self published. I then cam up with this wild idea about a romance novel, thinking it was the biggest industry and most likely to have luck publishing. Romance turned out to be a lot harder to write than I anticipated, but I got the book done. Four rejections later, I went back into the book, changing the ending and then changing it again. This time, the book was ready for publishing. I was almost immediately picked up by eXtasy Books (www.extasybooks.com). They provided me with the cover, which is absolutely gorgeous. The editors were excellent, helping turn "Straight from the Heart" into a first class novel. I have written the sequel called Back to the Heart. My short romance story came out on July 4th entitled Summer Surprise. Coming soon through Devine Destinies, I have an inspirational adventure called Banking on Life which will be released on August 18th.
