An Unwilling Author

After being medically retired my world as I had known it vanished. I centered my life until that time around my flying and my family. Fortunately for me, I has a family that supported me and picked me backup when I was down.

My grandson Anthony one day showed me a video game he was playing on his tablet. It was a 6 vs 6 game with robots battling other teams. It looked interesting and Anthony was wanted me to play on his team and I just can’t say no to my grandchildren.

So, Anthony and I played together. After some months Anthony’s focus turned to other games, but I kept playing.

Soon I found myself in the top tier of the game and included into a Clan. The Clan was a great bunch of guys that enjoyed the game and the comradery of the members as much as I.

We would play and talk on discord for hours with players from all over the world. Here I found once again the comradery that I missed from my days of flying.

This new comradery inspired me to write a short story, which I shared with the rest of the Clan. Once they read the first story they were asking when I was writing the next one? One story soon turned into 5, then 20, and then finally 49 short stories.

When I finished the short stories, the Clan asked when the book was coming out.

Now, as an unwilling author, I self-published my first book Cry Havoc on KDP. As my medical condition took its toll. I could no longer play, but I continued my writing.

Now I enjoy the comradery of other indie authors and those that enjoy my books.

Remember! A donation of likes and follows keeps me fed. Thank you all for your support.
