I write action packed thrillers.
I want to try it all–and the list keeps growing.
What I’ve tried so far:
Fiction Writer: the next frontier!
The Army: Army veteran, rank of E-5 (sergeant, not specialist) trained first as a clerk, then a cook, then a heavy equipment operator. The heavy equipment was much more satisfying to work with, and the skills I learned there paid off when we started building our house
Organic Gardening: Certified as master gardener, have 30 blueberry bushes that produce abundantly. Sometimes I get to eat them, sometimes the elk herd gets there first.
Life Coaching: Got certified, had clients, realized that the people that ask for help either don’t really need it or want a magic button.
Cub scout denmother: and certified as teacher for archery and BB guns.
Advanced Open Water scuba diver (love them sharks, and barracuda too.)
Home construction: built a four-story geodesic dome that we still live in as owner/builder. Started 1995, finished 2030?
Traveller — 46 states and 17 foreign countries. Shown here: Remaining segment of Berlin wall in 2014.
Pet slave: Dog lover (and cats, too, I suppose, just don’t tell them.)
Skiier: I may never do the black diamonds, but I have plenty of fun on intermediate slopes.
Interesting Work experience: Statistician, pre-school art teacher, and funeral attendant
Non-interesting work experience: Lots. I don’t want to think about it.
