Started writing my first novel, Blood Lust, in 1994 and got it published in 2001. Got unpublished 2004 :(
Married the mrs in 1998 (a reminder for myself) and was a stay at home dad for 7 years, raising our two children My Girl (2000) and The Boy (2003).
After attempting to break the publishing vicious circle (no publisher without an agent, no agent without a publisher) for 6 years, decided to self publish at (a href="http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/zorga")Lulu.com</a>*; 5 novels to date and working on the next.
Now "teach" "English" at secondary level. Seems more like I try to teach basic manners.
*also available at amazon but I don't get paid as much through them.
