I am 36 years old with a wife and 4 children. I have a deep desire to write for a living and nothing brings me more joy than that. A good day is one where I can sit at the computer or with a pad and pen and put some work down. I write poetry, songs, screenplays and pretty much whatever pops into my head. I would love the opportunity to earn an income doing what I love so much.
