"...chance favours the prepared..." I am a plumber/musician/artist who lives near Vancouver BC. Though I've written many things before, none have ever made it to publication. Mostly song writing, a few comic series, and a couple of short stories, oh, and some letters to my mother. The songs never made it to hits. The comics were about friends, so none, other than my friends, would pickup on the inside humour. The short stories still sit in a box, and as for my mother, she still likes to hear from me.
