I published the first short story I ever wrote, in Temple University's literary magazine. That was circa 1958. Life's imperatives and a business career ensued—during which I wrote stuff for money in every imaginable medium—except, come to think of it, the sky, the earth and water.
I began to write for myself full time in 1993, and have been doing so since then. Though I wouldn't claim I'm prolific, I've built up a reasonably large heap of manuscripts—short stories, novels, children's books, plays, verse, nonfiction and songs. Although I've published but a smattering of these in the past 15 years, and one might conclude I'm either bad at selling my work or the work I submit is simply bad, I intend to continue to add to my heap of work and to expose it to as many editors, agents, literary contests and publishers as I can for as long as I am able.
