I have been practicing Martial Arts for 16 years and have been teaching others for 11. I am certified to teach Bruce Lee's Non Classical Wing Chun, Arnis (Philipino Stick Fighting), and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I also worked in a night club for a number of years and the fight scenes that I write into my stories are based on real street combat techniques.
I also enjoy travelling and use the places that I have been to as the backdrops to my stories. I visited Japan, Iceland, England, Canada, the Dominican Republic and most of United States including Alaska. When I'm not traveling, like any good author, I enjoying reading, fine dining, and spending time with friends and family.
I write because I have to. There is so much going on in my head and, unforntunately, I can't type fast enough to get all out.
Authors: J.K. Rowling, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dumas, Hemingway, Poe.
Books: The Hobbit, The Count of Monte Cristo, Harry Potter and . . . (like them all), The Chronicals of Narnia and Sherlock Holmes.
Nice to see you joined. Hope this new world is good to you. Some great writers here.
Thanks for your comment on Just Another Rainy Day, I think they were too.
I think you're the first to list Holmes. Very cool. Welcome.
