I've been writing since I can remember and I love it, as well as hate it. You know you're a writer when you realise you have no choice but to write and that is me. I'm nearly 40, married to a beautiful woman and have two incredible kids. I live on the Gold Coast in Australia and to date have published three books. I regularly write whether that be for magazines, blogs, lectures and talks I'm going to deliver or my next book. I hope all that I have learned can be of benefit to you as you go on to do great things with your writing.
