Why I Started Writing:
I had a nagging interest writing. I can't say exactly where this interest came from. I had retired from the practice of law, and I guess the urge just overcame me. I started writing, and much to my surprise I found the process enjoyable. It's clearly work, though. What I enjoy the most is playing the violin and reading the New Testament in Greek.
