OTR trucker, Humanist with attitude.
card-carrying member of the working class, I can
honestly say, to quote
Jillette: "Computers kick ass!"
I discovered the PC
I found I
do some magazine work and still drive. With my laptop riding
me I could spell, make corrections without an eraser, chew gum, and
what side of the interstate I was on, all at the same time!
I have been dividing my off-duty
time between typing years of handwritten MSS to disk from cartons of
on the road, publishing a monthly column–"Don't Ask
Us"–and writing articles published by Target Media Partners
in their popular magazines. The transcribing from notes includes two
mainstream novels, two thrillers, and a new
series based on the "Axel McKay" radio plays I wrote
Haynes, and aired
on the WLAC Nashville Network. (Note from John Baumgaertner II, Bleep-Free Press administrator:
the above statement has been out-of-date for some time. Aalborg is
working on another book and went into seclusion (again).
I do not have the time or patience for marketing, and could use an agent to work on commission.
