Why Do I Write?

I grew up in the 70’s, those wonderful years when sifi television was born.  My mind was expanding just as the bionic man showed us what future technology could do.  I was curious of all things as Von Daniken showed us the tomb of Kukulcan in “Chariots of the Gods”, and that beat up old paperback “Think and Grow Rich” convinced me I could do anything.  But, it was John-Boy who lead me to write.  His smooth voice, full of 20/20 vision and confidence drew me into the Walton family.  Every week there would be a new story, I guess that’s why I’m drawn to short stories, rather than longer ones. ( Still, I loved all 10 of the Mission Earth novels)  My real family was large as well,  I was the second youngest of eight kids.  In my mind, I was the writer of the family.  Just as in the television show all of the kids went their own way.  They have become  chefs, truckers, medical workers, factory workers and more. I’m still trying to be a writer and I still thank John-boy every time I start a new project.
