A simple man with varied tastes. A dilettante and a dabbler that's me. What else could someone like me do other than write? You can't go to school forever and I sure didn't want to be a teacher. So, I'm trying to make a living with a pen. I prefer to write fiction, but I love to write and learn. Researching and writing articles kills two birds with one stone.

You can also follow me at my blog as I endeavor to become a renaissance man. A man needs a hobby. I need lots of hobbies.

If you haven't already joined infobarrel. Sign up here to research, write and make some extra cash.
