I am a first time publisher to Amazon.com. I have been interested in writing commercially for a long time and am finally venturing into writing to the world of book readers of stories short and long. I have sold articles to magazines in the past, but that was more as a hobby. I love history and that was my favorite subject in school. I am a financial advisor, and I am a huge advocate that subjects such as finance, insurance, and business should be topics to prepare students for life beyond high school.
