Hello! First, thanks for checking out this story. I hope you’ll stick with it and see it through to the end. If it all comes out in writing the way it lives in my mind I think it will be a pretty powerful story.
My name is Bill. I’ve been around a while, like, fifty years at the time that I’m writing this. I feel like I’ve lived multiple lives during those fifty years. I’ve experienced a lot, learned a lot, loved a lot, lost a lot, grieved a lot, enjoyed a lot, and still find a lot of dreams alive inside of me yet to be lived.
I love to write, and find that I speak most openly through the written word. I’ve written books before, always non-fiction boring stuff about leadership and marketing and personal development. This is my first attempt at fiction. This story lives deep within me, and it’s a story who’s time has come, not only in my life, but I think in the lives of many of us.
I’ve been a marketing executive in the media industry for about 25 years and am now in the process of building my own company and transitioning into retirement from the corporate world within the next year or two. I’m not a good employee. I don’t enjoy being told what to do, or being told what I can’t do. If you find yourself sitting next to me at a stoplight, I’ll likely have the top down on my Fiat Spider with Queen’s I Want to Break Free or Don’t Stop Me Now or Pit Bull’s Feel This Moment booming obnoxiously through the sound system. That’s kind of my soundtrack these days. I’m happy to have finally reached a point in my life where freedom is upon me and the second half of the book is ready to be written.
Nice to “meet” you. Enjoy the story.
