I grew up in a small coal mining town in Southwestern Virginia. I left high school half way through my 11th grade year. When I left school I couldn't read past a 4th grade level. I went back to school when I was 25. My English professor saw I couldn't read and spent the next 3 months teaching me how to read.
I went on to get AS in mechanical engineering/ Architectural design. Then spent the next 18 years as a mechanical designer.
Went back to truck driving in 09 and did great.
NY daughter showed me a website where you could write stories and other people woukd read them.
I started Time for a serial killer for the second time and finally finished in 2012. Then published it in June of 2020.
