They say to write what you know, so I created a character who trains horses, speaks with water and throws a mean right hook. In lieu of speaking with water, I do in fact train horses and throw a mean right hook. Story has always been central to my life. When I was a child my father would read aloud after dinner—everything from The Lord of the Rings to The Royal Pavilions—and as we grew he began reading my brother’s and my creative writing aloud. And editing it as he went. There is hardly a better way to learn to write than having it lovingly shredded on a weekly basis by the resident English MA. So here I am, writing a weekly web serial adventure story, painting, training horses, and selling real estate. And of course, practicing my punches.
If you like scifi, you should also head over to my brother’s blog and check out his scifi serial, Space Dust, about a motely crew of bounty hunters.
