I'm from Erie Pennsylvania, and lived in a number of places but was in Florida the longest and still miss the place everyday, as I'm now in Tennessee. I'm the middle child and eldest son of romantic novelist Jane Bierce, who is also a major player in EPIC, a trade group devoted to e-books and e-publishing. I graduated college with an Associate Degree in Aviation Management--which has been totally useless in the Real World. I have had an awful joke of a career so far and need to jump-start it somehow. I tried to write for comic books once with a very small publisher that failed back in the early Nineties. I've written several magazine articles, mostly product and book reviews.
