WRITE UNTIL I DIE
An account of how I had to give up before the door to publication finally opened.
I'm a professional author with 11 books and 200 published articles as well as 42 produced scripts. Although I wear many hats, writing has been my livelihood and passion since age twelve.
Currently the CEO and co-owner of a company dedicated to environmental solutions, I have travelled extensively: sailed across the Atlantic and the Pacific—was the skipper of a million-dollar yacht at the age of 24 in New Zealand and in 1989 survived cyclone Harry, a Category 4. I walked three times over the Andes into the Amazon jungle with Native Indians, took part in gold survey expeditions in Ecuador's rain forests, cycled across South America, built wooden houses, advised Ecuador's Central Bank on currency design; these, and many other experiences, are invariably being weaved into my writing.
