Aspirant authors are everywhere. How many make it happen? Not many, but it's happening for me. Here I'll share my journey, everything I learn along this arduous hike for self-discovery up Mount Everest. A little about me: managing to impress them with gusto, I was fortunate to apprentice under Scott Bradfield and Paul McAuley. I'm presently represented by the same agent who represented Anthony Burgess. Dreaming is a fight wherever dreams come true. Bring it on.
