Retired - writer wannabe (one pro sale) Married - no children - no pets - pity my peace I've mostly been a machinist and moldmaker although I've had a plumbing business and a window washing business. My first business was a worm farm at 11. I sold a couple thousand dollars a week on eBay for several years. I recently made my first pro writing sale to Jim Baen's Universe E-zine. More to follow I hope. I'm profoundly hard of hearing so that limits my socialization. I like to think I am loyal. I value kindness more than intelligence.
