While it doesn't pay my bills (yet...), I am a freelance writer and struggling novelist in between paid writing gigs. I do the bulk of my recent work (as in, the past 10 years) for Computer Gaming World as a freelance reviewer.
I've completed one actual novel and three "could be novels after a few more re-writes" and am close to the "ready for submission" stage on two of them.
I own over 65 board games and 200+ computer games, and would never part with any of them. One of my lifelong goals is to reacquire the great board games I owned as a child. While Ebay has helped me greatly with some of the more easily found treasures, I still persist in my pursuit.
On a personal yet political topic, I am American but consider myself a 'satellite British Subject' despite some rumors I've heard about some War of Independence or somesuch. My family line hails from the industrial regions of Austria; some of the most beautiful sights this planet has to offer. If Planet Earth were to issue a post card for visiting intergalactic aliens to send back home with 'weather's fine wish you were here' notations, Images of Austria would certain color the frontward sides.
Also, I collect Geekgold and 6 sided dice - and am known to carry about my collection of dice for impromptu trades.
