Late 1950s

Billy comes into this odd and dangerous world. He was born into a loving working class family in the late 1950s, in the northeast region of the USA. He was an average student with high aptitude and very poor penmanship. Throughout his childhood, he keeps journals and writes stories he is too embarrassed to share. He never stopped writing.


Family Man. He continued his professional career, running his own shop for a number of years, and immersed himself into raising his children. He never stopped writing.

Late 1970s

Billy comes out of the cocoon and goes into the world. He made his way through high school, doing well in topics related to writing (journalism, creative writing, English) but not applying himself to his full potential in other areas. He graduated, and for lack of other options, joined the United States military. He excelled in the disciplined aspects of training, but after assignment to his permanent duty station did not fare as well. He separated from the military in the late 70's. He never stopped writing.


Winding down. Billy neared the end of his professional career during this span, and began winding down that phase of life. He never stopped writing.


The wanderer settles down. He began the decade wandering lost on the highways and byways of America, by thumb and motorcycle, lost. He found himself, returned to school, fathered some wonderful kids, and dedicated himself to providing for his family. He earned his degrees while working full time and often with two jobs, then began his professional career and threw himself into it full-force. He never stopped writing.


Out of the shell. Billy finally begins to pursue his life-long passion, writing. He starts to bring some of his short stories together as a collection, and completes his first novel. He never stopped writing.
