How old were you when you first started writing?

My senior year in high school, I observed that my classmate sitting next to me got a higher grade with a lower score than I did on an English test.  I went to my teacher, Mrs. Batchelor, who said that she graded that way because I could do better.  Her wisdom really changed me.  In my late twenties, I started writing about my adventures, first as a way to motivate participants to join me but later to record the event.  I’ve been doing that for more than 30 years, but I didn’t start to “publish” my writing until just a few years ago.

What was your inspiration for the book?

It was a way to bring together my writing with my photography and passion for the outdoors.

What is the most challenging aspect of being a writer?

Time is always a challenge, but the biggest challenge is marketing the book.  It’s getting the attention of others.

Do you have a message for other aspiring writers?

Write!  There is no substitution for sitting down at the computer and writing.  Sometimes it comes easy, and I can knock out a page in a few minutes but other times, it’s a chore.  However, what I usually find is it may be a chore to start but as I get in to it, it becomes easier.

What is the last book you read for pleasure?

I just finished Andrew Tobias book “The Only Investment Guide You’ll Ever Need.” I’m currently reading Clayton Christensen’s new book “The Prosperity Paradox” and “A Field Guide to Desert Holes.”

Where can your book be purchased or read?
