Andean White

   

After family, Sage the dog, and biking, writing is my joy.

(More at www.AndeanWhite.com)

My career as a small business owner was cut short by Parkinson's Disease. After the decision to sell the business was made, it became apparent that few of the buyers knew how to develop a business plan. Writing an e-book on "How to Purchase a Small Business" seemed so logical. It was a good guide with lists of questions and a sample business plan. But marketing it became another matter.

A new hobby of writing travel journals, sprinkled with a little encouragement from family and friends, sparked a desire to test my writing skills, and decided it was time for that dream job--coffee on the deck, smokin' keyboard, e-books zooming through the Internet, and dollars collecting in the bank account.

Early spy short stories were posted on free e-book sites and developed a small following, which I thought was large enough to attempt a book. That second book was disappointing, but the experience was invaluable. And, I knew I wanted to write.

I fell back on my small business experience, and surrounded myself with the best people.

Two years later, an aspiring writer, telling stories that hopefully guide a reader's imagination to a world of excitement, and provide a brief rest from the everyday duties. I discovered that true writing was hard work, and quality required a lot of detail awareness. Maybe, there was still a chance of coffee on the deck...someday.

As a young boy at family gatherings, I recall listening to the men after a meal. The opinions around the subjects of politics, car brands, hippies, and rock n roll filled the room with energy like aromatic smoke from a pipe. But, when the story telling began everyone found a seat or patch of floor. We sat for hours laughing and gasping at the stories, fact or fiction--they shaped who we became and it strengthened our imaginations. Fifty years later, it's clear a world without imagination would be pretty boring.

Marrying my high school sweetheart was my most brilliant accomplishment. We enjoy sporting events, backyard barbeques, outdoors, concerts, and travel with our friends.

Andean's books are available at all major online bookstores.
