Our good friend Webster defines BIO as a noun, short for, biography, which is defined as: 1. a written account of another person's life. 2. an account in biographical form of an organization, society, theater, animal, etc. 3. such writings collectively. Since I am tasked with writing the account of my life, that would make me, at least for the next few minutes, my biographer, I’ll start by saying, I was born (most of us start out that way) in a small tourist town on the coast of South Carolina. Canadians and Sandlappers know the place as Myrtle Beach. Growing up there did little to kick-start my writing career. I’m a late bloomer in that sense since my fiction writing career spans less than the last five years. The Virgo/Little Professor in me went down the path of engineering after abandoning the wrecklessness of my early twenties...What this event did was cause me to step back and ask myself the question, What do you want to do going into retirement? The answer was actually pretty easy to find. I remembered being the happiest when putting together stories for the motorsports gig. I started thinking I might try my hand at fiction. A college English professor had told me that I showed a definite aptitude for writing. I figured it was time to apply the skill to something other than typing out specifications and product catalogs. So here I am, a little older and a little wiser, with a couple of jobs come and gone, dozens of short stories (two published), and one freshly written novel of paranormal suspense later, standing on the cusp of my debut book launch. I can’t tell you what tomorrow will bring, but I can tell you this. . . I’m doing exactly what I was born to do! Mickey Mills The Prodigal Scribe
