While David is spurred on by his alter ego Kenny Black, Marty is writing as an outlet for his creativity, and Georgie Mae writes because she must, my motivation is something of  a hybrid – I must explore the reasons behind events or actions and then write them  so others can understand.

Like Georgie Mae, since I can remember, I’ve loved to read and write. And, a passion for finding out the answers to my questions, especially those no one else wanted to answer, always drove me to do my own research and make inquiries that would satisfy that burning need to know.

I consider journalism and writing a privilege. I’m able to do something that I love to do, learn about things that I feel are important to us all, and in my spare time, write stories that I sure hope will be entertaining to the readers.

Like Kenny Black and Georgie Mae, I’m sort of out for justice too; like Marty, I’m looking to understand that which I don’t understand now.

And so, being a Rogue is a wonderful thing. I make things up or tell the truth – hard to tell the difference some days. Maybe that’s what the magic of writing’s all about.

What do YOU think?
