Introduction I've been a career analyst who has lived a double-life for the past two decades as a creative writer, exploring the world beyond facts and figures. My writing comes from a personal passion for storytelling, for offering new perspectives to familiar themes, with moods ranging from friendly humor to serious observations on the darker aspects of life. Short stories and character sketches have been a compulsion for several years, and several stories have since been published, The first published novel was "The Book of Cain,"with two other manuscripts now being shopped.
