I'm going to be a published fiction-writer in a few months, as part of a collaboration with artist Michael Breyette.

We were only kinda aware of it until we were approached for this project. Now, of course, we're saving our pennies to pick up an original piece or two. . . or at least a framed print.

And yeah. He's good. . . .

Finance manager for a major automotive corp. (zzzzzzzzzz) And still waiting till I grow up to see what I really wanna do.

Do any of you still wonder, "How the hell did I end up here? Where did I go wrong?"

What I wonder is, "Why didn't I start throwing my heart and soul into my dreams in my twenties? I'd be set now!" :?

Quite the opposite - while I DO wonder "How the hell I ended up here", I also ask "How the hell could I have been so lucky"????

Once again, those of you who know me also know that the profession of Quality Assurance was MADE for someone as detail-oriented as myself :wink:

You could wonder.

My startling talents and bulging intelligence could have got me to lots of places.
Then again, on the way to collect my Nobel Peace Prize for science, literature and saving kittens, I could've been hit by a bus.

Part of my issue is that I needed technology to develop both the Internet and home computers, so I could work at home in my boxers. . . . :wink:

About a year and a half ago I start porting and polishing cylinder heads for poeple and they must be happy because they keep coming back as well as new poeple... I was actually turning down work a month ago. As well I buy basket case MX and non MX dirt bikes, redo them and flip them for extra $.

So it's paying the bills. And I keep my own schedule. 8)
