K.J.Ester - I was born, raised and still living in the wonderful state of Michigan. I have no plans to ever move away because I love my wife, family, and the Detroit Lions too much to move away from them.
My days seem to be filled with work and my family. I write for half an hour every weekday during my lunch. There is nothing I would like more than to someday be able to write full time. But I also know I cant do that without you. My readers are the ones who will buy my books. Spread word of them and leave reviews (hopefully nice ones). One promise I can make is that the day I can afford to survive from my writing alone, I will publish my next book and make it free and dedicate it to my readers.
In 2003, at the age of 37, I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. I discovered how much I love writing. I have never taken classes. I have read and studied how the great authors like Robert Jordan, David Gemmell, Brandon Sanderson and many others wrote. I wouldn't change a thing, for what better teachers could one ask for?
I have never experienced Writer's Block and I do not believe I ever will, for it is far more difficult for me to shut my mind down long enough to sleep, than it is to prod it to life again. My imagination is my best friend. My greatest enemy. It is the essence of who I am.
I am also the creator and the owner of the blog, "Michigan Spiders". In the warmer months, I receives up to a dozen emails per day asking me to help identify spiders. (Pssst.... You dont have to be from Michigan to email me a pic) MichiganSpiders@hotmail.com
I have added a new site. The Spider Guide is a project I am working on when time allows. If you are not from Michigan send pictures of spiders to SpiderGuide@hotmail.com
