While I’ve always put thoughts to paper, I started writing seriously in 2001. That was the year I systemized my fitness training into a written program. After finishing my tour of duty with the Canadian infantry in Bosnia, I started work at Golds Gym as a personal trainer. Shortly thereafter, I realized I was teaching all my personal training clients the same basic information when they were getting started. Realizing this, I put it into a book format and gave each one a copy when I first met with them for a consultation.
Once I wrote the book on getting in shape, I realized I could sell the book to those that couldn’t afford one-on-one personal training. It was only a short jump from there to create a digital e-book and sell it online. You can now get that book on amazon and it’s called Begin At The Gym. Then I wrote more books on fitness and bodybuilding. You can see the full list of books on Amazon here.
After I covered what I felt was useful to people in fitness, I started to write fiction… and that’s what I do now.
