Retiree (finally got the drift of it)
I have been writing for fourteen years and have fifteen books on Amazon/Kindle. Some horror, some twisted, some experimental, some essay and a few historical.
I think that now I will really, really, really retire and just write.
Lets see if I can do retirement correctly this time!
